The storm on September 25th caused major flooding in Clinton. At The Morgan School, flooding occurred behind the school damaging the bridge to the fields. The pipe was not big enough to drain the excessive amount of water that was poured into the river from the storm. The pictures below capture the damage to the bridge.
Principal Keri Hagness said that the town approved money to repair the damage done to the bridge. Mrs.Hagness said that the “repairs will start now and if it is not done by the time winter comes then work will continue to be done in the spring to fix it.”
One major concern is that the repairs on the bridge will not be done for the graduation ceremony in June. But the weather has been nice so they are already working on it as fast and efficiently as possible to get it done.
