College Place Flood
Residents of College Place apartments in Boone, NC were awoken around midnight (Wed) and instructed to move their cars across the street to avoid having rising waters destroy them. The heavy water flow was a result of some form of water valve/piping failure a little ways up the road. Many of the residents were out in the parking lot playing in the impromptu pond and taking pictures of their flooded cars. Eventually the Town of Boone came through and shut down the water system, allowing the parking lot to return to normal.
