HAVILAND, Kan. (AP) - Strong winds have torn the roof off a Kansas grade school cafeteria and deposited its remains in an adjacent parking lot.

Haviland Grade School principal Mark Clodfelter says about 70 students, from kindergarten through eighth-grade, were at school around 3 p.m. Tuesday when the cafeteria roof blew away. The Wichita Eagle reports that no one was hurt.

School surveillance video shows the flat, white roof rise from one end, fly up and then crumble as it hits the parking lot containing several parked cars. The National Weather Service says the wind was gusting up to 70 mph (113 kph) in the area at the time.

Classes at the school are expected to resume Friday after repairs are completed. Haviland is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of Wichita.
