College posts video documenting flood damage repairs

Posted on: 8:29 pm, June 28, 2013, by

Galesburg, Illinois experienced major flooding in late May 2013, causing extreme damage to Carl Sandburg College.

During the week of June 24, the college president lowered the damage estimation from $500,000 to $300,000.

Since the campus was not declared a disaster area, all repairs are being done without Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance.
