Richmond County school officials said today that flood damage occurred at Butler High School over the weekend.
According to officials, in some areas the flooding caused nearly two feet of standing water and damage involved a new gym floor at the school. School system Facilities Director Benton Starks said today that work is still being done to dry out the new gym floor as well as an old gym floor. If the two floors can't be salvaged, he said the cost from the flooding could reach $250,000.
Starks said the flooding occurred during a downpour Saturday, but he said officials aren't yet sure why it caused such flooding at the school.
