Tulane University Hospital Clinic
1400 block of Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana

Location: N 29.95542, W 90.07661 (approximate)

This seven-story steel-frame building was flooded to the depth of approximately 1m for about two weeks. It has no basement, no major building service equipment at first-floor level, and few broken windows, so damage was limited primarily to architectural finishes at the ground floor. At the time of the MCEER reconnaissance, a contractor was demolishing ground floor drywall and drying the building.
