Recent hailstorms have taken a toll on West Las Vegas Middle School.
The storms, which occurred on the last two Wednesdays, caused leaks in the roof at the school, which means the West district will have to replace ceiling tiles, Superintendent Jim Abreu said this week.
Several inches of hail fell on parts of Las Vegas, particularly in its central areas, in the first storm. The buildup of hail apparently plugged up drains on the middle school roof, which caused the leakage, Abreu said.
“The roof was compromised because of the hail,” he said.
