FAIR GROVE — A southwest Missouri elementary school is assessing damage after a storm ripped off its roof.

Winds from the storm Sunday morning lifted the roof off of Fair Grove Elementary and blew part of it onto nearby trailers.

Superintendent John Link says the roof was just six months old.

Officials have not yet figured out if school will be held Monday.
