August 20, 2010
GREENVILLE, SC — Mold forced the closure of five classrooms at Greer High School on Wednes­day, and excessive mois­ture in 12 others could cause them to be closed to­day, according to WLTX-TV.
"Individuals sensitive to mold may experience aller­gic responses such as skin irritation, irritated eyes, sore throat, flu-like symp­toms, sinus congestion or respiratory problems," said district spokesman Oby Lyles.

Wet carpet in two com­puter labs was ripped up Wednesday and will be re­placed with tile, the article noted.
