The water damage to Southland High School from Monday’s storm could cost more than $50,000, according to custodian Tim Saaranen.
A primary drain on the roof was blocked by seeds and tree debris, causing rain water to overflow into the vent system, leak into the ceiling and drain onto the second floor.
No structural damage was done to the school, but there was quite a bit of cosmetic damage done to parts of the ceiling in the auditorium, spotlights, carpet and ceiling tiles.

The exact cost is still unknown because school leaders don’t yet know what needs to be replaced.
