Murray State University's main campus will be closed again Wednesday. MSU officials say at least 40% of MSU's major buildings suffered significant damage due to frozen pipes and equipment.
Spokesperson Catherine Sivills says crews are still making rounds through buildings to assess the damage.
"As soon as we know the extent of the damage, we will make a determination on re-opening," Sivills said.
Murray State shutdown power to the main campus last night at the request of the TVA to help meet extremely high demand due to the arctic temperatures. MSU has a generator in place to carry enough load to prevent such problems from occurring. But, that generator malfunctioned last night. MSU has an "interruptible contract" with the TVA which allows the TVA to require MSU to reduce its electricity usage. Sivills says MSU receives "significant" savings for this contract.
