    I'm Skye Hickling, and these pictures were taken at Radford University in Radford, Virginia outside of the Dedmon (athletic center) building around 8AM this morning after my diving practice. There were massive floods today that left Bisset park, a couple parking lots and almost the Dedmon building underwater. The students were not notified of the flooding until 5:35AM. Even then, by 6AM when I was arriving to morning practice, the cars in the lot were covered past their tires.
