MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A final tally shows a tornado that struck the UW-Platteville campus nearly a year ago caused $18.6 million in damage.

The school released the final damage numbers on Tuesday.

The tornado hit the campus on June 16, 2014, breaking windows, destroying roofs, downing trees and bending light towers at the sports stadium. The twister caused $7.3 million in damage to Bridgeway Commons, $4.8 million in damage to Rountree Commons and $1.8 million to Southwest Hall. All three buildings are dorms.

The tornado caused $1.8 million in damage to Engineering Hall, a classroom building, and $1.7 million in damage to the stadium.

The university plans to mark the one-year anniversary of the tornado with a free gallery exhibit in Ullsvik Hall on June 16.
