LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Morning and afternoon classes at the University of Louisville's Belknap campus have been canceled due to flooding that dropped nearly five inches of rain in the Metro Louisville area. Evening classes will continue as scheduled.
The main campus has also been closed to traffic due to high water, according to a news release. Some buildings have water inside them, according to the release, but it's not clear how much damage may have been sustained.
Several vehicles that were parked along Brook St. have sustained "major" water damage, according to the university.
At one time, the main area of flooding was around the intersection of Warnock and Brook Streets on the east side of campus, but that water has since receded.
At the chemistry building, there where about an inch and a half water that leaked into the basement. Crews were barefoot and had their pants rolled up to try and squeegee all of the water out. There were a few buildings with water damage.
The University says it's glad few students were on campus because it's an intersession right now. The summer session doesn't start until next week.
Dr. James Ramsey, the U of L President says, "The Houchens Building had water. I'm only aware of one potential injury. An individual working in Houchens slipped and fell and last I heard, they were at doctor or at the emergency room determining the extent of the arm injury."
Lighting also struck The Province residence hall. Huge plumes of smoke rose from that fire. 24 students were evacuated and 12 are displaced. The university is working with getting those students a place to live and says there is plenty of room.
