The campus has been closed since Monday afternoon, when an industrial accident led to an explosion in a boiler room at the campus. One plumber was seriously burned in the explosion.
Tri-C says a main power from CEI into the campus was damaged in the explosion. The cause of the explosion is underway.
The college says around the clock repairs to the damaged electrical equipment are taking place with the goal of restoring power as soon as possible.
Students are encouraged to check news media outlets for updates on the status of the Metro Campus later this week. The latest information will also be posted online at the Tri-C website. (See the related link below).
