HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) -- Lamar County School District officials say $7 million in damage was done by the Feb. 10 tornado that struck Oak Grove High and its baseball and football facilities.
The Hattiesburg-American reports the district has a $50,000 insurance deductible it hopes to have covered by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.
District Construction Manager Johnny Downs says they've taken bids on the repairs to the football field, lighting, replacement of the high school's windows and gym floor, replacement of the score boards for baseball, football and softball facilities and replacement of the maintenance shed.
The School Board will decide at its May 21 meeting whether to accept the bids.
