COWETA, Okla. – Damage reported at a local school following the strong storms on Thursday could cost the district up to one million to repair.

School employees estimated that damage caused by strong winds and rough rain at Coweta Junior High could cost quite a bit to replace or repair.

"Summer just got a whole lot busier before the first day of school," said the Superintendent Jeff Homes after the storms.

Roof damage, broken baseball field fences and air conditioners ripper off the buildings were just some of the reported issues.
