Illinois, U.S. - Workers this morning repaired a basketball-sized hole created when lightning struck near the roof of Roosevelt School in Belleville.

District 118 Superintendent Matt Klosterman said the strike was at about 8:50 a.m. Tuesday where fifth and sixth grade classrooms are located. No students were in the area at the time because they were at Jefferson School for field day. Field day was canceled by the storm.

Klosterman said damage to the building was cosmetic, but crews are trying to patch the hole to keep rainwater out until permanent repairs can be made after school lets out for the summer in a week.
