Storm damages high school in eastern Ky.

Posted: Updated:

CAMPTON, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky school is trying to dry out after high water from heavy rains got into three classrooms and the gym.

Wolfe County High School Principal Greg Creech told WKYT-TV ( that much of the problem stemmed from water coming off a hillside, but some came from repairs that are being made to the building's roof. Those repairs stem from damage the school received in a tornado outbreak last year.

In addition, heavy rains Wednesday caused flooding on several roads in downtown Campton and about 200 people were without power after the storm.

Creech said school officials would bring in de-humidifiers and fans to try to dry out the school. He says no equipment was ruined and the school would be open on Thursday.
