High winds blow Quincy elementary school roof off

QUINCY — The gym roof at Ancient Lakes Elementary School sustained serious structural damage during Tuesday’s strong winds, according to the Quincy School District. 

On Facebook, the District said the metal roofing had been blown off, and that the building would be closed to staff for the remainder of the week due to potentially dangerous debris.

Peak winds reached between 40-60 mph in the region Tuesday, toppling trees and leading to power outages for thousands of residents.
