As storms moved through Mississippi, they brought heavy rain. Jackson, MS picked up a whopping five inches of accumulation on Monday. The roof on Jackson Prep’s indoor basketball court collapsed while staff was trying to clean up from the flooding.

“We heard a pop and it looked like the ceiling was going to give way but then the whole roof came down and we were very fortunate to get out of there.” Said Head of School, Dr. Jason Walton. No students were near the collapse and staff was able to run out of the doors swept open by the rushing water.
