Weekend storms cause severe damage throughout Mesa

Mesa Public Schools Operations Crews are cleaning up the mess nearly two days later.

"The crews will have to get out here and re-dig those lines, and make sure the sprinkler system is operational so that the tress and grass are watered," said Principal Kent Ashton.

"A little bit of fence damage from those tress coming down," he said.

"Some of the neighbors were saying they thought it was a small tornado or something, I said I don't know about that, but at least it was a microburst," said parent Richard Wojahn.

"I drove in Sunday morning from the Gilbert Road side, and the first words that came to mind was Armageddon, I was concerned for the building if that was damaged," said Ashton.

Mesa High School had some tarps ripped off the roof and trees uplifted from the ground as well.
