A tornado that swept through the metro area Friday, May 31, left OCCC with fallen trees, toppled light poles, broken call boxes, flooded classrooms and roof damage.

Marketing and Public Relations Director Cordell Jordan said, financially, OCCC does not yet know the full extent of damage, but said the college does have insurance that will cover the cost of repairs.

“We’re working with the insurance company to assess the damage,” he said.

Jordan said money for the $800,000 insurance deductible will likely come from OCCC’s contingency funds — money set aside for unexpected costs.

From there, Jordan said, it will be a matter of working with the insurance company to figure out the repair and replacement costs.

The Pioneer will update this story as more information becomes available.
