The University of Iowa is sending crews and materials to assist the Iowa Braille School, located in Vinton, after it was damaged by severe weather early Monday morning, officials said Monday.

UI Facilities Management is sending crews to help assess damage, and the UI is prepared to provide power generators, electricians, and ground crews to help with the cleanup.

UI spokesman Tom Moore said the UI also sent two officers from the UI police to assist with overnight security.

The Braille School is a state Board of Regents institution for students who are legally blind; it provides housing, skill development, educational training, and other services.
