Wayne County School District has 12 new storm shelters

Wayne County parents have a little less to worry about if bad weather should come during school hours. Monday, the Wayne County School District held a ribbon cutting for its new safe room shelters.

In 2009, the district was awarded federal and state money to place storm shelters on all school campuses.

There are a total of 12 safe room shelters throughout the district. The total cost of the Wayne County safe room project was 7,953,680.
