April 6-- The high winds associated with storms moving through Georgia this week caused some damage at Vidalia Heritage Academy in Vidalia.
According to Headmaster Jeff McCormick, wind early Monday rolled back a portion of the roof on the upper school at the corner of 2nd and Durden Streets. There was some water damage in the classrooms below the roof, however, the good news is students are on Spring break this week so there was no disruption of classes.
He expects repairs will be made shortly and classes will resume Monday as scheduled.
Meanwhile, Toombs County Emergency Management Director Lynn Moore says there's no truth to a TV report Wednesday night that a tornado touched down in Santa Claus. Despite the wind, rain and ligthning overnight, he reports no significant damage that he's aware of in Toombs County.
