Storm cleanup begins at Bronxville High School
A major storm cleanup effort got under way at Bronxville High School today.
The campus on Pondfield Road was overcome by floodwaters from Irene, just four years after millions of dollars were spent on repairs after another major flood.
Flooding was so bad at the school, which sits in a low-lying area near the Bronx River, that the first floor was under at least 2 feet of water. Many classrooms, the gymnasium, the cafeteria, parking lots and even two of the outdoor fields were badly damaged.
School officials say they don't know if school will start back up on Tuesday as planned. Right now, they say their No. 1 priority is making sure the building is safe before the students are allowed back in.
