Jan. 7– The extreme cold of the last couple of days has wreaked havoc on Hardin County High School.
Though classes have been canceled the last two days, school officials arrived this morning to find pipes had frozen and burst, causing water accumulation of 1-2 inches on the north end of the building and near the auxiliary gym.
Water spillage has crept into the school’s band room, auxiliary gym, multiple coaches’ offices and several classrooms.
School officials including HCHS Principal Williams McAdams and Assistant Director of Schools Michael Davis, along with county firefighters are currently evaluating the scene.
Davis described the situation as “pretty bad.”
