Does any one on the ground know if the Law school was damaged by the tornado?

Only minor damage to the campus in general. Don't know about the law school which sits on a far edge of campus. Some apartments off campus were destroyed, however.

Most of the tornado footage was actually filmed from the campus... they were a fair distance from the storm and didn't sustain much damage.

Ok Sounds like it should be fine. I'm still waiting on my sublet to get back to me about whether or not i have a place to live for the summer.

15th street (right next to campus) was literally flattened. Several homes are just... gone...

deathcab wrote:FWIW, the school is closed until Friday due to the tornadoes yesterday. There are over 30 dead in Tuscaloosa and over 160 dead in Alabama alone. There is no structural damage reported at the school but McFarland Ave. is completely destroyed in some areas and there are hundreds of people that had their entire homes destroyed.

Keep the whole area in your thoughts and prayers.
