Discovery Lake felt the effects of Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 as winds and rain pelted the area. Even though a total of 4.7 inches of rain fell, the NIEHS campus was spared the storm’s fury, the physical damage limited to leaves and small limbs littering the roadways and walkways. The lake shoreline and low-lying areas were flooded by rising water and fish were found trapped at Bridge #3.
