The Monday morning thunderstorm caused flooding and other damage to at least two dozen buildings across LSU’s campus.
According to details from LSU, the damage ranges from plastic siding that has come off of Thomas Boyd Hall to water leaking in from ceilings, windows and through doors.
The basements of Allen Hall and Atkinson Hall had experienced flooding, as did the fourth floor of Choppin Hall.
Sand bags were needed at the back door of the LSU cafeteria and officials warned that expensive equipment could be threatened by the water in the Life Sciences Building.
LSU has canceled classes for the rest of the day.
In addition to damage to campus buildings, the storm toppled the foul poles at Alex Box Stadium.
