Large storm over campus and Lightning hitting Chatlos

Last night (Saturday, September 8, 2007) at around 11:20 PM lightning struck the Chaltos dorm. There was a large electrical storm with much needed rain for the Binghamton area. The dorm is fine other than at the present time the phone system for the campus is not working. No one was injured, praise God. The lightning strike caused all the alarms to go off and the girls to be evacuated from the dorm to the gym for a short time. The event reminds me of the first classes done on this campus in 1911 and the large storm that occurred. I wrote about in Part 7 of the life of John A. Davis and also in an article about King Hall. The storm caused damaged the campus and destroyed trees. Are there any storm memories of Alumni?
