Storm Topples Trees Across Campus, Knocked Out Power

Story posted February 26, 2010

The wind-whipped rain that flooded scores of roads across Maine, and knocked out power to more than 100,000 homes and businesses across the state, has left a number of trees and limbs down around campus.

Clean-up crews tackled a number of areas, including near Ladd House, Brunswick Apartments and Pine Street Apartments.
