Floods again delay start of school in Johnson City

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- It's another day off for students in Johnson City because of flooding that for a second day is postponing the start of school.

Classes were supposed to begin Monday but were canceled after torrential rain on Sunday night caused flooding that damaged some of the city school bus fleet.

WJHL-TV reports that school officials decided not to open Tuesday because more repairs are needed to put a full fleet of buses on the road.

Students will have to make up the missed days later.
