Pella High School is still cleaning up from the heavy rains late last week. The lower level of the East wing of the building sustained flooding in and around the gymnasium and weight and locker rooms.

Principal Eric Nelson says they found out about the damage Friday morning and crews were hard at work over the weekend.

John Hammond with L&J Restoration Services out of Olds, Iowa says drying out the wood floor in the gym will take between 1 and 3 weeks at which point the decision will be made to keep or replace the floor.
