ARGONIA, Kan. (AP) -- The school year could start later than planned in a south-central Kansas district after a powerful storm caused extensive damage to two buildings.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1bKjpMH ) parts of the roofs were torn from the elementary school and the junior-senior high school in Argonia late Monday afternoon. Several homes in the Sumner County community also had roof damage.

Argonia superintendent Julie Dolley says classes are scheduled to begin Aug. 21, but she's not sure the cleanup can be finished by then. Parts of the ceilings at the schools caved in, allowing heavy rain to pour into the buildings.

The storm pounded Argonia and nearby towns for nearly half an hour with hail, rain and straight-line winds of 60 to 70 mph.
