Construction Wraps Up After Twister Hit College Campus

A local college is almost back to the way it was before a tornado ripped through campus back in November.

The twister, which came through two nights before Thanksgiving, damaged five buildings at Carteret Community College.

The damage displaced dozens of faculty and staff members. Some classrooms were temporarily moved.

Repairs and construction began in January and now four of the five projects are either finished or underway.

The total cost of the repairs is estimated at $750,000. Insurance is paying for 100% of the cost, with the exception of a $5,000 deductible.

All construction is scheduled to be finished by the end of July.
