Cheyenne Civic Center Damaged by Wyoming Rainstorm

August 11, 2008

The Cheyenne Civic Center sustained an estimated $500,000 in damage from a flash flood caused by a heavy rainstorm.

Civic Center Executive Director Dru Rohla says about 500,000 gallons of rainwater flooded the building’s basement from a storm that dropped two inches of rain.

The basement contained expensive electrical equipment, a baby grand piano and the boiler room.

The theater area itself was not damaged, but two scheduled events were canceled.
