Storm damage keeps Portland preschool closed

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Damage from Wednesday's flooding canceled classes for a second day at the Trinity Day School in Portland. The school suffered major damage from the storm.

Dehumidifiers and fans were running at full blast at the school which is located in the basement of Trinity Episcopal Church.

More than half a foot of water overwhelmed the drains and flooded the school which has about 30 pre-school students.

Reverend Larry Weeks says because the storm water mixed with sewer water the church has major clean up ahead.

The school's carpets and baseboards have to be replace and everything sanitized.

'For the protection of the children all of this has to all the rugs all the baseboards anything the water touched, beanbag chairs, has to go, said Rev. Larry Weeks of Trinity Episcopal Church.

Classes will be held at the church's parish hall next week. The hope is to reopen the school in about a week or so.
