"POTSDAM - The campus of SUNY Potsdam has suffered extensive damage as a result of Tuesday afternoon’s thunderstorm.

Spokesperson Alexandra Jacobs said the roof blew off of Stowell Hall, an academic building that houses science classes.

The roof of Carson Hall, another academic building was also damaged, as was the roof of the Performing Arts Building, which is currently under construction.

Ms. Jacobs said the school officials are currently evaluating the situation and a decision on whether or not classes and orientation events scheduled for tomorrow will continue is expected later tonight.

She did say there were some parents and students staying on campus and school officials were trying to decide where to place generators, so they could be housed in buildings with power.
