Although schools in Clay County weren't affected, many schools in the Wabash valley opened after a two-hour delay Monday, due to the Sunday night storm.
Ivy Tech Community College -- Wabash Valley Region fared worse than the elementary and secondary schools in the area. For the second time in six weeks, the airport at Terre Haute, where Ivy Tech classes are conducted, was damaged by high winds.
Due to damage sustained Sunday, no day classes are being conducted at Ivy Tech today and Tuesday night classes will be moved to the facility on U.S. 41 S. The night class exceptions will be Aviation, Manufacturing and Industrial Technology and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning programs, according to an e-mail from Karen E. Henderson, Director of Marketing and Communications for the school.
Notices will be posted regarding room assignments.
"Updated information will be released as soon as possible regarding the status of classes and services at the airport campus," Henderson wrote.
Meanwhile, all faculty and staff were requested to report to the south campus at 8 a.m. today.
