Flood Alert System Tested
(2008-04-08)
(WOUB) - Ohio University tested a new flood alert system Tuesday.

According to a press release, department heads in buildings located on the flood plain received phone calls and emails alerting them of predicted flood and rain fall levels.

They are then responsible for notifying other members of their departments.

Nearly 100 buildings, sports facilities and parking areas--including most of the dorms on campus--are in the flood plain.
