Lowellville Superintendent Rocco Nero said Wednesday they are still waiting for a claims adjuster to give the final report on the damage caused by lightning more than a month ago.

Nero said they have not started repairing the building, which suffered extensive damage June 13 after lightning struck the roof and sparked a fire.

Nero said the school district has no alternative plan and hopes the school can be repaired in time for the new school year.

The school suffered smoke and water damage. Crews at the time covered a classroom full of computers with tarps to save the electronics from being damaged.

The lightning caught insulation on fire, which spread through the roof, officials said. Firefighters used chainsaws and other tools to open the roof for ventilation, which helped contain the fire.
