 Volunteers spent one of their weekend mornings shoveling snow from the roof of a school in the New Hampshire town of Auburn before more snow arrived.

Fire Chief Bruce Phillips says about 40 people showed up Saturday morning in what he called it "a great community event."

He says the roof of the Auburn Village School had been deemed safe but with more snow in the forecast — and the potential for heavy wet snow — crews started on Friday to remove the load.

The Milford High School was evacuated Friday due to a partial roof collapse. The school district in Epping remained closed Friday for snow removal and repairs after cracks were seen around the doorways of some classrooms. Newton and Madbury also have dealt with roof concerns.
