Skyline High School students rally to save skyline high from flooding

BROCKTON, N.J. (AP) A group of Skyline high School students and school staff have rallied around their school amid rising water levels in their backyard.

The school was evacuated Sunday afternoon after a flood caused flooding in a nearby park, and the school is now under a boil water advisory, according to the school district.

The students and staff gathered on the roof of the school for about an hour Sunday, as they prayed for the safety of the students and their teachers, who were evacuated in a separate evacuation.

The skyline community has been hit hard by the flooding that hit the region Sunday night, with more than 100 homes flooded, according and many residents in the area without power.
