Parts of Northeastern Pennsylvania were damaged on Tuesday when a storm traveled though. In the storm’s path was Marywood University.

According to Director of Buildings and Grounds Wendy Yankelitis, the storm caused two large trees on campus to be knocked down. The first tree, located behind the Marywood arch, had damaged sections removed.

“We hoped we could save the remainder of the tree but looking at it yesterday that is not the case,” said Yankelitis.

Yankelitis said the remainder of the tree should be removed in the upcoming weeks. The second tree, located behind the School of Architecture, has been completely removed.
