Ike's remnants affect regional campuses, center

Sep 18, 2008  

The remnants of Hurricane Ike that blew through Ohio over the weekend affected three Ohio University regional campuses and a center.

The Lancaster campus canceled classes Monday through Wednesday after the storm's high winds interrupted electric, telephone and Internet services in the area. The campus reopened for evening classes at 5 p.m. Wednesday. There was no building damage, but some trees were downed.

The Pickerington Center canceled classes on Monday and continued to experience telephone service interruptions Tuesday.

On the Chillicothe campus, a tree fell on a building housing the law enforcement technology program, crushing the porch and a wall. Program faculty and staff were temporarily relocated to another building, and the cost of repair or demolition is being assessed. Wind also damaged the roof of Bennett Hall.

While several students, faculty and staff of Ohio University-Zanesville were impacted by the wind storm, campus damage was minimal. A light pole was toppled, and branches and debris were strewn about campus.
