Back to press release

These photographs show damage to about 60 percent of the buildings at the University of Kansas in Lawrence when a severe windstorm struck about 8 a.m. Sunday, March 12. Straight-line winds of more than 70 mph swept Mount Oread from the west, causing more than $6 million in damage, largely to roofs and windows. Many trees also were uprooted or split. Similar damage occurred to buildings and homes in Lawrence, although no injuries or deaths were reported.
