The Palm Beach County School District said William T. Dwyer High School is closed Monday for "apparent tornado damage." All other schools are open.

The school district is asking that teachers and staff not come to school, saying the campus is not secure or safe.


Storm debris, including roofing material, siding and plywood, was scattered around the school.

Part of a bleacher was blown into the median on Central Boulevard, which is adjacent to the school's baseball field. 

A portion of the fence was damaged at the field with substantial debris strewn on the field.

The National Weather Service has not confirmed a tornado hit the area.
