VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) - A southwestern Indiana library director says a library building in Vincennes recently damaged by a severe thunderstorm suffered more extensive damage than initially thought.

Library director Emily Bunyan says the Knox County Public Library’s Bloebaum-Fuller Outreach Building had been believed not to have sustained any structural damage when thunderstorm winds ripped off about half of its awning.

But Bunyan tells the Vincennes Sun-Commercial (https://bit.ly/1ub1PaQ ) that a follow-up inspection found weakened bricks and a compromised entrance on the building’s north side.

She says the building isn’t in any danger of collapsing, but the bricks need to be reinforced to prevent any further damage.
