While there was no damage to any of the district’s school campuses, administrative offices did see some of the impacts.

According to Superintendent Alan Lumpkin, the district’s central office is temporary located in mobile units. On one of those trailers, the wind blew off the awning, which peeled back the roof. That allowed water to come into the offices.
