    This is nothing compared to the flood of 76, happened during summer so not a whole lot of students there, may of been a few people that elected to work in town during the summer then and the smaller summer classes as fall and winter were the full semesters then as they are now. This flood pales in comparison to the Teton Dam Disaster and I doubt anyone that experienced that would want to experience it again.

    I am glad that they were able to serve their fellow community members. I do have a problem with the school holding finals during this time. Some things are more important than school.

    Many college students do not have Renter's Insurance, and many policies do not include Flood Insurance, thus for many who lived in those apartments their belongings will likely be a total loss. It's a rotten situation for those who weren't able to save things like laptops and textbooks, let alone clothing and other belongings. Fortunately housing at BYU-Idaho is furnished by the apartment complexes, rather than the students. Hopefully they have flood insurance!
