With winds up to 110 miles per hour, a tornado moved through Pepper Pike, Ohio, on Saturday morning, damaging several buildings at Ursuline College, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.
The school's president, Sister Diana Stano, said it was a "blessing" that no one was injured in the storm, though the tornado ripped off the roof and one wall of the gymnasium.
A post to the school's website said the tornado caused "devastating damage" to the gym. Several other buildings were affected, while debris and fallen trees littered campus.— Brian Ivey (@weatherguy10) July 21, 2013
“The blessing is that there was no loss of life or injury," Stano said in a statement.
Ursuline said the school would be closed Monday.
