SUPERIOR (AP) - Repairs at the University of Wisconsin-Superior are nearly complete after June flooding devastated the campus.
Heavy rains caused flooding that damaged every building except the Service Center on the south side of campus.
But facilities management director Tom Fennessey tells the Superior Daily Telegram that repairs are about 95 percent complete. He's optimistic repairs will be finished when students return to campus in a couple of weeks.

The storm caused more than $23 million in damage campus-wide.
