A bus driver, who took some Rockingham County students home late Tuesday afternoon because of road closures caused by flooding, actually went the extra distance later that night.
Lora Lohr drove her students to the Bergton area by following an escort vehicle through some water-covered roads Tuesday.
After she got her students home safely, she was making her way home when she realized water was crossing a bridge she needed to pass, and it might cause problems in the morning.
"I was kind of like, if I go in I may not get my bus back out in the morning, and I have to have my bus to get my kids! And if there's school, I have to get my kids! So I decided to park my bus at Fulks Run Elementary and just forgo having any means of transportation for myself, and a friend of mine picked me up and I spent the night in Fulks Run with them," says Lohr.
She says there weren't any problems from flooding when she drove students to school Wednesday, but there was a lot of debris in the roads.
