Storms cause damage at Bath County schools

By  | 

BATH COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - "I have some stuff for work in there, I have some CDs and things like that. Just stuff that I normally leave in my car that I didn't think I'd have to take out," said Amanda Hogge while looking at her crushed rental car.

Hogge would have to wait until a cleanup crew removed the massive half of a tree that landing on her car late last night.

Bath County Schools actually delayed the start of school two hours because of storm damage around the county.
The schools maintenance director told me he and other leaders wanted it to be lighter before school busses had to go out and navigate some of the debris-laden roads.

Maintenance and cleanup crews for the school system worked on clearing out fallen trees in front of Bath County Middle School.
But they realized once the sun was up, the high schools football field suffered the most during last nights storm.

A portion of the fence surrounding the field was ripped from its frame.
Also, one of the four massive light towers posted at the field was knocked to the ground by the powerful winds.

WKYT learned that one of the trees crews were working to clean up from the front lawn of Bath County Middle School was planted there in memory of students who have died during past school years.
