The total cost of damage to Onslow County Schools has been estimated at $125 million, according to school officials.
The Onslow County Board of Education toured multiple schools locations across the county Wednesday to get a look at the damage caused by Hurricane Florence.
Ten out of 38 schools were dealt major damage and as of Wednesday, only nine schools have a green light to open.
Onslow County Schools is using its own funds to replace the roofs, which officials said are due to delays with insurance companies.
If it rains, schools without roofs will be in danger of receiving more water damage, forcing them to start over again.
