Announcements: SCCPSS Assesses Damage Following Friday Afternoon Tornado


SCCPSS Assesses Damage Following Friday Afternoon Tornado 


A tornado associated with severe weather moving through the Islands area at approximately 4:00pm this afternoon has caused damage to the roof and grounds of Marshpoint Elementary School.  The school has canceled open house that had been scheduled for Monday evening.


Islands High School sustained damage to the school athletic fields, mainly to the fence line and bleachers.  The school facility is not damaged and is operational.  Coastal Middle School did not sustain any damages, though there are some trees and light poles down at that location.


The Oatland Island Wildlife Center sustained downed trees and power lines which blocked the roadway into the facility and kept 19 staff members and 21 visitors on the island until approximately 7:30pm when county crews could get the road cleared.   All were kept safe in the main building and there are no damages to the facilities.  Some animal enclosures did sustain damage.  All of the Oatland animals are secure. 


No school district injuries were reported with the weather event.


SCCPSS Maintenance crews and Campus Police responded immediately to the scene.  A full damage assessment and recovery plan is in progress for Marshpoint Elementary and parents will receive further information on school opening through notification call and email over the weekend.
