UNM cleans flood damage as classes near


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – With school just around the corner, UNM says cleanup crews are working around the clock to ensure that classes are in session come Monday.

They say they’re racing to clean up flood damage from last week’s rainstorms. Nearly 40 buildings were damaged, including drywall, library materials and flooring. One building was struck by lightning.

Operations at the recently remodeled honors college are at a standstill Monday.

School officials said access to some of the classrooms is impossible, but that they will be open for school on Monday.

”We are open for business, so our business are functioning they will be usable but we’re still doing repairs and that’s something students at New Mexico are still going to have to understand,” Director of Physical Plant Department, Mary Vosevich said.

Insurance adjusters have been making visits to the campus for about a week.

The university is expected to know more when those visits have wrapped up.
