Living in Carman can sometimes resemble wading through a disaster zone. Last night was one of those times. Freshman flood survivor Kurt Kanazawa reports:
Last night, the explosion of a hot water pipe in the bathroom of suite 1103 set off a fire alarm and covered half the floor with about an inch of water. Only one person in the suite was in town – Nicholas. Residents immediately helped Nicholas evacuate
his and his suitemate’s room, pulling out bottom drawers, snack kits underneath the bed, light/laptop/cellphone chargers, carpet, refrigerator etc.. The flood also spread and invaded about 2 other suites on the floor, whose damage varied.
While inactive authorities stood on the outside observing, students – some friends of the suitemates, others complete strangers – lifted their pants and got their shoes wet to get things out, stacking them all in the hall near the elevator. Many tourist-students attempted to exit the elevator to observe the damage and were shoved back into the elevator by campus security.
