Friday's high winds are taking a toll on an earthquake-damaged building at St. Gregory University in Shawnee.

University officials said because of the winds, one of the damaged turrets on Benedictine Hall has become even more unstable. The building is almost 100 years old, and the other three turrets are also severely damaged.

Crews plan to take the turret down with a wrecking ball between 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, so they can continue working on the other turrets.
