CLEVELAND (AP) — Dozens of Cleveland State University students forced to move from their water-damaged residence hall after superstorm Sandy likely will be displaced until the new year.
The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/UqAmSP ) reports that wind from the Oct. 29 storm was so strong that it drove rain through the frames of the windows and into the rooms of the 22-story Fenn Tower downtown.
The water cascaded down the interior walls of the north-facing rooms and affected wiring, setting off fire alarms.
More than 80 residents of the tower were displaced. Some are staying in a hotel, while others moved home or were relocated to other residence halls.
More than 300 other residents were not affected.
