The Town of Elon has declared a state of emergency due to the storm damage. There are a large number of fallen trees in neighborhoods and several homes received serious damage. During the storm, the municipal building was also damaged due to falling limbs from a large tree. The town’s Public Works, Police, and Fire Departments are working to clear areas affected by the storm.

Students who live in Town of Elon neighborhoods are asked to be patient during the cleanup and watch for information about debris removal. The Town of Elon Facebook page is a good source of information:
