LONDONDERRY, N.H. (AP) - Cranes have been brought in to clear snow from a southern New Hampshire school roof before the next snowstorm approaches.

Employees at Accurate Tree Service volunteered their time on Friday to clear the snow off of the Londonderry South Elementary School to make sure students were safe.

WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/1AAG2Q2 ) reports that crews shoveled snow from the school’s roof and cranes were used to haul away heavy snow and clear parking lots.

Dave Burl of Accurate Tree Service says the roof was engineered to hold 44 pounds per square foot. He says the weight was approaching 30 pounds per square foot so additional snow would have been too much for the roof to hold.

A blizzard warning was in effect for parts of southern New Hampshire Saturday afternoon and into Sunday.
