FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson Prep suffered some serious roof and water damage Monday night after the roof collapsed, following heavy rains in the metro area. 

The school's newspaper, the Jackson Prep Sentry, posted surveillance video of the collapse on its Facebook page:

Head Master Dr. John Walton said in a statement that there is water damage to the gym, lobby and adjacent areas.

Dr. Walton says no one was seriously injured, adding that quick action by staff members, parents and friends of the Prep Family who pitched in to help probably prevented further property damage.

The area was roped off and school was scheduled to start on time Tuesday.

Dr. Walton hoped to get a better assessment of the roof damage in the daylight and asked for patience as they work to get the problem resolved.
