Found Footage: Flood in Sparks Building Computer Lab

The weather outside is downright nasty today. Blame it on Tropical Storm Nicole. State College is predicted to get drenched today. All in all, the weather’s good for the region, which was put on drought watch recently by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.

Drought relief comes at a cost though. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning until Friday afternoon. And it seems that Penn State is no exception to the wrath of Mother Nature. Onward State’s John Rinaldo sent in footage this afternoon of a flood in the Sparks Room 15 computer lab and its adjacent classroom.

Towards the end of the second clip, you can see just how much water leaked in.

That’s all we have for now. If you see any other floods or accidents caused by today’s very significant rain around campus, send us a picture or a video. Until then, relish your antediluvian memories, Penn State, and stay dry.
