September 2011 Flood Recovery

The Broome County area and its residents (including many BU students, staff, and faculty) were devastated by a flood of historic proportions September 7-9, 2011. Over 20,000 people were evacuated and many more were impacted by the flood waters. As the community comes together to try to recover from this crisis, many are stepping forward to help. This website contains information to guide those interested in volunteering or donating to help others who were impacted.
