Creek floods elementary school in Perry County

HAZARD, Ky. (AP) — Perry County school officials are cleaning up Big Creek Elementary School after flash flooding.

According to WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/102eXCw ) in Hazard, heavy rainfall Monday night brought Big Creek out of its banks and put as much as 3 1/2 feet of water into the school building.

Crews are cleaning mud from the building. A kindergarten building next the school was destroyed by the flooding, but Principal Jeff Castle said officials had previously decided not to use the building in the coming academic year.
