NY high school becomes storm shelter for migrants

New York City Mayor Eric Abrams visited the gym at a Brooklyn high school used as a storm shelter for migrants.

Students at Brooklyn's James Madison High School "were kicked out of the classroom" today "to make room for nearly 2,000 migrants" from a nearby tent camp, reports the New York Post. The city feared a huge storm would collapse tents at an abandoned airfield.

Teachers were told Tuesday afternoon that they'd have to provide online lessons on Wednesday.

Parents were unhappy.

The asylum-seekers, who slept on the gym floor Tuesday night, are being moved back to the field today. However, another storm is on the way.
