Dec. 11 storm causes minor damage to Stanford campus

Dec. 19, 2014, 9:01 p.m.

According to University Emergency Manager Keith Perry, last week’s storm caused minor damage on the Stanford campus. Several basements experienced flooding as intense rain of over 0.75 inches per hour hit the Stanford campus the morning of Dec. 11. Some finals had to be relocated by the Registrar’s Office due to flooding at the History Corner.

Other disruptions to Stanford included some leaking roofs, flooded roads and power outages. According to Perry, all the power outages occurred in buildings serviced by Pacific Gas & Electric.

“Other than that, the campus survived this first big storm of the year fairly well,” Perry wrote in a statement to The Daily.
