Severe storms early Saturday morning caused minor damage at UAM and most residential students were without power, according to a news release Jan. 11.
There were no reports of injury or unsafe conditions. Maxwell Hall, a residence hall on campus, sustained the most visible damage, as a large section of roof covering was blown off by wind, but this did not lead to damage to the rooms below, according to the news release.
No serious structural effects on campus buildings were identified, though a tree did damage a part of the garage at the chancellor’s residence.
A number of trees and limbs all around the Monticello campus were down, and crews worked to remove them safely since early Saturday morning. Students and visitors are asked to remain cautious on campus and to make an effort to stay out of the way of crews and debris, according to the release.
Anyone on campus who may have safety concerns is encouraged to contact the University Police Officer On Duty at 870-723-4505 at any time.
