TULSA — Officials at Oklahoma State University's Center for Health Sciences have closed the facility after the roof of the complex sustained heavy damage in overnight storms.
The health sciences center, along with the school's health care center and clinical financial services buildings, will all be closed Wednesday.
The roof of the Forensic Sciences and Biomedical Research Center sustained roof damage from the near-80 mph winds sustained during the storms. Other buildings were affected as well.
The powerful thunderstorms swept through parts of Oklahoma late Tuesday and early Wednesday, knocking out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses and setting off fires caused by lightning strikes. No injuries have been reported.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts of 75 mph or higher were reported in parts of the state.
