ARGONIA, Kan. (AP) — Recent storms in south central Kansas will mean two extra weeks of summer vacation in one town.

Officials in the Sumner County town of Argonia say consecutive storms blew off roofs and soaked classrooms in two school buildings.

School was scheduled to start Aug. 22, but will now be delayed until Sept. 3.

Superintendent Julie Dolley says the storms caused an estimated $886,000 in damage.

KWCH reports (http://bit.ly/13m2sjH ) restoration crews say it takes about 10 days for buildings to dry out after heavy rain. The process has had to be restarted in Argonia because the storms have been constant over the past two weeks.
