HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The arctic temperatures are creating headaches for maintenance staff at Marshall University.

Marshall Physical Plant Director Mark Cutlip says pipes have burst across campus, sprinkler systems have frozen and heating coils have seized up.

So far the damage has added up to more than $320,000.

One of the buildings with the most extensive damage was the science building. Repairs to the building include ceiling and floor replacements and broken pipes.

Cutlip says it will take several weeks to finish the repairs.
