Although it was a sunny day, Dec. 1st was a bad day for student Teroy Roberts because of the strong winds that left a tree branch lying on top of his car.
His 2006 Mustang, parked in the ‘G’ Lot next to the dorms, was in a stall next to a tree planter.

The unusual weather toppled other branches throughout campus, including one that forced the Cedar Ave. entrance to the dorms to be closed. A fallen branch blocked the sidewalk between the Aspen dorms and the Henry Madden library, and next to Speech Arts a branch measuring more than 20 feet fell on the lawn.

No injuries have been reported.

  • Fortunately, no injuries. I think it is most important! We must be very careful where we go and where parking our cars because it is dangerous.

    The school needs to pay for my damages. Thank you
