MUNSON TOWNSHIP -- Crews are working round the clock to install a temporary roof and dry out the water-logged floor of McGarry gym at Notre Dame Cathedral Latin School.

It suffered the worst storm damage Wednesday night of any site in Geauga County.

John Lawrence, a supervisor with Paul Davis Restoration, said it appeared a "microburst" of high velocity wind did the damage.

It peeled off about 2,000 square feet of layered roofing material. The roof did not collapse. And there were no massive holes. But water poured through spaces around a damaged fan and drainage pipes.

On Thursday, a battery of supersized fans and massive dehumidifiers were put in service to try to dry and salvage the floor.

School is out for the summer and, thankfully, no students or staff were nearby or at-risk when the storm hit. That rarely happens on the busy campus. Sr. Jacquelyn Gusdane, the school president, minimized the incident in a fact sheet to parents and students, calling it a "summer surprise." She said the Lord and His Providence were watching out and protecting the school community.

McGarry gym activities will be moved to a second school gym and other locations.
