The storm damage caused by softball size hail is causing huge headaches for many Wolfe County school employees.

Officials say it will take millions of dollars to restore what the recent storms destroyed.

Nine days ago, softball size hail poured down in Wolfe County leaving a handful of the county's schools in total disrepair, especially Wolfe County High school.

Employees quickly became overwhelmed at the extensive amount of damage.

Officials say it will cost more than 10 million dollars to replace at least three of the schools' roofs

Step by step, staff and students at Wolfe County High school are working to fill the empty desks and deserted hallways.

There is already a world of difference in the school's condition after just one week of cleaning.

Students at Wolfe County Elementary returned to class on Monday, but school officials say the High school will remain closed until at least Thursday.
