Clark also posted a video from inside one of the CAU dorms, where you can see flooding in the hallway. Video shows it appears one of the students had her leg trapped in a door.

11Alive's Cody Alcorn spoke with Clark Atlanta student Cherish Turner who was studying for an exam. By the time she got out of the library, she said water was rushing down her shoes. 

"It was scary," she said. "I looked out the window and seen the large flood and more videos kept coming in of the cars floating."

A spokesperson for Clark Atlanta University said officials quickly responded to the incidents to support students during the flooding. The university said crews are working to assess the damage and make repairs. 

"All students living in the residential areas affected by flooding are in the process of being relocated to new housing. We will continue to assess the impact of the severe inclement weather," the university said in a statement.
