A press release from the university stated that pipes had burst at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house over New Year's Eve weekend. The damage caused students who lived at the residence to move into the dorms on or off campus.

The university also stated the water damage was mainly due to a furnace at the chapter house that had broken over Christmas break when temperatures dropped below zero degrees. 

The house will remain closed through the spring semester while repairs are made.

Chapter leaders worked to find the 25 members who lived at the residence a new place to stay over Christmas break. 

The fraternity currently has 73 active members.

Not the best start to our weekend as cloudy skies and a few rain showers return to the forecast for Saturday. Do expect only a few showers today, certainly will not be a washout. High temps today will get into the upper 50s. By tonight, showers are again possible with lows in the mid 40s.
