PUEBLO - — Folks are picking up the pieces at the Sacred Heart school building Tuesday after strong winds ripped the H-VAC system on the roof Monday evening.

The damage caused a gas leak and the pouring rain caused flooding inside the building.

Most of the work done Tuesday was just assessing damage.

"It's just the fact that it is a shock that this happened. We are kind of unsure now, we wanted to use this building more for classrooms for our adult education, so we are going to have to reconfigure our ideas. It will depend on how much damage there is," said Father Derrek Scott.

Church leaders said the next step is to see what insurance money with help pay for.
