PILOT ROCK, Ore. (AP) — An Eastern Oregon high school has found severe damage in the roof supports of its gym, which is closed until an engineer can say what went wrong and what fix will be needed.

The superintendent in Pilot Rock, Gordon Munck, tells the East Oregonian newspaper (http://bit.ly/T1Sz9k ) that many wooden trusses are damaged, and one is broken through.

He said repairs could range from fixing just the broken truss to replacing the roof or the gym.

An engineer is due to report on the damage by the end of the week.

In the meantime, the Pilot Rock basketball teams will play their home games at Pendleton High School, 15 miles north, and practice at nearby gyms. Gym classes have been moved to the junior high school.
