The Sacred Heart Villa School  in Lewiston is a mess – to say the least!

There was a water main break under their property which poured water into the school. It created devastating damage – up to 5 feet on the walls.

Deana Neri Jenkins’ son was set to graduate in just two days. She posted about the awful mess, “My son and his Villa friends were to graduate in 2 days. Unfortunately, the Sisters were awoken by an alarm at 5 am yesterday in the basement and furnace room. A major water main break in Town of Lewiston, located directly behind children’s playground, burst and created devastating damage. Water up to 5 feet on the walls! Flooding, no power, refrigerators and doors ripped off the walls, piano ruined. The sweet Nuns are having a hard time coping with all of this. The damage is extensive. Thank God their alarm went off.”
