Coping in the AFTERMATH of the RAIN and FLOODING

Recently our area experienced an unexpected severe weather event. Many students, staff and faculty found the storm and the events of that evening traumatic. Many have also experienced significant property loss as a result of the storm. Some of our UWF community lost cars, homes, and treasured items. For UWF this happened right in the middle of an already anxiety ridden time - final exams. There are many harrowing stories of surviving flooding in houses and cars and it is important for people to share those stories as a part of their healing.
