The University of New Mexico is scrambling to clean up and make repairs in the wake of flood damage from last week's rainstorms.

KRQE-TV reports that nearly 40 buildings were damaged.

University officials say classrooms will be open for the beginning of fall classes on Monday.

However, physical plant Director Mary Vosevich says some repairs will still be underway.

Insurance adjusters are checking conditions on campus and the university expects to know more about the costs of repairs once those visits conclude.
