CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – A large tree on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus fell overnight – hitting Alumni Hall.

The tree fell overnight leaving its roots exposed after two days of off-and-on rain across central North Carolina.

The University said the tree caused minor damage to the Alumni Hall portico.

“We will consult with a licensed contractor to remove the tree in a way that minimizes additional damage,” the school told CBS 17.

Alumni Hall is located next to Morehead Planetarium on Cameron Avenue by McCorkle Place.
