At least schools in the Tucson Unified School District were impacted by strong storms Friday.
Employees at Van Buskirk Elementary School, 725 E. Fair Street off South Park Avenue, had to be evacuated due to downed power lines and damage to the roof is being assessed.
Van Buskirk sustained heavy damage to the roof and at least five classrooms have water damage, Capt. Chris Jurvig, a spokesman for the Tucson Fire Department, said in a news release.
There were 18 at the school who had to be shuttled out because downed power lines blocked the road in front of the school, Jurvig said.
No injuries were reported.
Workers at Carrillo K-5 Magnet School, 440 S. Main Ave. downtown, put out sandbags in response to flooding on the property.
TUSD did not have a complete list of schools impacted Friday afternoon but district officials were in the process of securing outside vendors to address any necessary repairs as quickly as possible, said TUSD spokeswoman Cara Rene.
