Damage from a Monday afternoon storm won’t affect the first day of school at Brenau University, but students can expect to see some other changes as they begin the school year today. A storm that tore through the area Monday also knocked down some trees and branches on the campus.Campus security officers Van Johnson and Matt Mefferd were the first to arrive that evening to help clean up. Johnson, who has worked three years at the university, said he didn’t remember “ever seeing anything like it.”“In about 10 to 15 minutes the storm hit and broke branches, uprooted trees and spread debris all over campus,” he said.
