The National Weather Service estimated that winds of up to 60-75 mph swept across the campus Monday.The winds caused many broken windows, damaged roofs, uprooted approximate 30 trees and sprung metal doors off their rails. All classes were cancelled at 7:00 a.m. Monday morning by the administration who felt that icy roads and strong winds made driving conditions hazardous. The WSC maintanence crew was out Monday and Tuesday surveying and repairing some of the major damage. Buildings and Grounds assistant director Sam Packer said since the maintenence crew includes carpenters and handymen, little outside contracting will have to be done. Security chief Lee Cassi-ty said ten reports of damage done to automobiles by the falling roof in the LaSalle dormitory have come into his office. Cassity reported that $1800 worth of damage was done to a 1974 Ford Maverick when pieces of the LaSalle roof fell on it. "I've been here ten years and I can't remember any more extensive damage ever done to the campus," said Cassity. Some of the other damage to campus buildings and grounds include: the hands of the belltower clock were blown off, a wall between two of fices in the Social Science building was blown down, the tennis court fence was bent, vent covers were torn off roofs and a few of the college storage sheds were blown apart.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
