A gym wall collapsed from severe weather at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike early Saturday

PEPPER PIKE, Ohio - The wall of the gym at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike collapsed due to severe weather overnight.

According to the President of the College, Sister Diana Stano, the security guard was on his break when a portion of the wall collapsed around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Sister Stano said she believed it was a tornado because there are several trees down in the area as well as other damage. She also said she was grateful the damage did not occur during the daytime and no one was hurt.

Due to the instability of the building, Ursuline's campus will be shut down for the next two days to assess the damage and begin repairs.
