JOHN DAY, OR — As water from the Canyon Creek begains to recede, water damage to Grant Union High School could exceed $1 million, according to The Oregonian.

Drenching rains and melting snowpack from the mountains caused the creek to overflow its banks, flooding the school and a number of other homes and businesses, the article stated.

According to the article, the school''s boiler room, administrative offices, a gymnasium and grounds have all sustained significant water damage.

"It''s pretty overwhelming," said Principal Curt Shelley.

"We are not in a financial situation to be repairing anything. We''re going to be hoping insurance covers the necessities," Shelly added.
