SOUTH HADLEY, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Strong winds overnight are to blame for damage at the Mosier Elementary School building in South Hadley, where a tree fell and forced students into remote learning today.
By late Tuesday morning, crews were able to remove the tree that had fallen on the building overnight.
When Western Mass News arrived, we found crews working to clear the tree from the side of the school building. They put the tree through chipper to cut down the wood.
There was also debris on the roof of the school building as well and there appears to be some damage remaining.
Fire crews had to assess the structure of the building to see if it was safe to enter. Our crew on-scene did notice people inside, working in the front office.
School is remote for Tuesday today. We'll continue to follow developments and bring you the very latest on air and online about the plan for school tomorrow.
