NORTH RIDGEVILLE -- As much of Lorain County deals with flooding cleanup and aftermath Tuesday, North Ridgeville's middle school and high school are dealing with flood damage.

Both buildings were swamped after torrential rains set off flash floods. Crews were in the buildings Tuesday to pump out the water and to begin the process of disinfecting the buildings. Band equipment damaged in the flood will likely have to be sent out to be professionally cleaned.

Administrators say the cleanup process will be costly.

This is the sixth time the middle school has been flooded. The high school building rarely floods. Both schools were closed Tuesday.

Students at the high school will have to make up the day at the end of the year.
