It is, and is not. It is possible the basement was flooded, but Bruce Boyd 
Raeburn, who at last report was still in Oakland, has reported that the 
Hogan Archive is housed on the third floor of the building. So long as the 
roof and windows were not damaged, the main worry is lack of power for air 
conditioning and ventilation. But he won't know for sure until he can 
return to N.O.
