Heavy rain pushed creeks out of their banks early Tuesday morning in Perry County. One of those creeks runs along Big Creek Elementary School. The water rose so much that it entered the school.

The main building saw between 6 and 8 inches of water inside with the adjacent Kindergarten room taking in more than 3 feet of water.

When the water receded, it left mud on nearly every floor. The school staff is now cleaning out the mud and will later disinfect the building. They expect the cleaning to take about a week.

The last time the school flooded was 10 years ago, when up to 5 feet of water pushed into the building.
