SEALY, Texas - Classes were canceled at two Texas schools after flooding caused by the weekend's heavy rains.
Water came in through doorways at the building that houses Selman Intermediate, Sealy Junior High and the district's administration offices.
As a result, classes have been canceled for Monday, October 14 at those two campuses.
"It was just too much rain for the drains and gutters to handle and it did go into the building under the doors," said Sealy I.S.D. Superintendent Scott Kana. "We had no structural damage, no roof damage, no leakage. It was just too much water, too quick." Kana said.
Crews hope to have classrooms ready for students by Monday at noon, so classes will resume Tuesday morning.
A couple of inches of water also made it inside A Child's Place daycare in Sealy. Owner Jim Turnbull told Local 2 that several fans and dehumidifiers have been set up so preschool students would be able to attend as normal on Monday.
"I opened the door and it was probably one of the worst things you want to see," Turnbull said. "We've been in business for 30 years and, unfortunately, a lot of things got ruined," said Turnbull. He said professional crews were brought in to make sure the daycare is completely safe for the returning children.
In other areas of Sealy, water covered several streets and intersections Sunday afternoon. Runoff from a flooded soccer field sent water raging between two homes, covering the street and Heather Kollmann's entire yard.
Kollmann said a neighbor set up a pump in her backyard after water seeped into the house.
"Sometimes it will go curb to curb, but it hasn't gone -- since we've been here -- where it covers the grass," said Kollmann.
