NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Tuesday's tornado caused more than $20 million in damage to Tennessee State University.

According to university officials, the storm severely damaged the schools' agricultural farm and three or four buildings. Two calves were killed, and several goats injured.

Dr. Curtis Johnson, TSU’s chief of staff, says apartments on the campus sustained some damage, such as ripped off siding and rooftops. Some vehicles were also damaged.

The students were on spring break, so no one was hurt in the storm.
