Averett University to be closed through Wednesday to clean up from last week's storm

Trees, power lines down on campus, buildings flooded

DANVILLE, Va. – Averett University will be closed through at least Wednesday as work continues to clean up from last week's storm.

Trees and power lines were still down Monday.

Part of a retaining wall collapsed and crushed a car.

Some classrooms, offices and dorms also sustained significant water damage last week.

"We really just ask that students continue to be patient. We know they're frustrated, but a lot of people are working very hard to get campus back to normal," Averett University Dean of Students Lesley Villarose said.
