Flag pole damage at Barranca Mesa

-A A +A

The flagpole at Barranca Mesa Elementary School blew over in the winds at about 2 p.m. Monday. The school’s maintenance department was on sight almost immediately and had the pole removed from the building. At no time did the flags touch the ground. It appears that the pole rusted off at the base and slowly eased over and rested on the building, causing minimal damage. This will prompt an inspection of the flagpoles at the other schools.
