GREENVILLE - A piece of the Greenville High School roof was torn away from the building late on Sunday evening due to the more than 30 miles per hour gusts sweeping through the region.
According to Greenville City Schools Superintendent Doug Fries, the damaged roofing section was confined to two or three classrooms near the science wing of the high school and only affected the top layer.
The maintenance staff reported the damage early on Monday morning, and the Greenville administration shortly after scheduled an insurance adjuster to assess the damage and bid out the repair work as soon as possible.
“We’ll just have to get it corrected as soon as we the weather allows us to be in a position to do that,” said Supt. Fries.
The Daily Advocate will issue additional updates as further information about damages and repairs are learned.
