Aug. 19, 2011MARYVILLE, MO | By: Wayman
One city especially hard hit was Maryville, where students at the university had to evacuate.
Officials at Northwest Missouri State say about 340 students were in residence halls Thursday night when the storms rolled through, and were evacuated to the student union building in the center of campus to keep everyone accounted for. Dr. Jerry Wilmes is Northwest's Emergency Management coordinator and says overnight assessments of damage to the campus was difficult, but in-depth inspections are starting this morning.
