Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The roof of a temple in Vestal collapses late last night.

According to the Hillel Academy website, the roof over the Temple Israel social hall collapsed on Dec. 15.

The extensive damage continued through two floors down to the basement where the Hillel Academy is located.

So far, the academy has only been able to recover their main computer because a significant portion of the basement roof collapsed.

School officials say they are finalizing a new location for the rest of the academic year, with plans to reopen on Wednesday.

All new school supplies and textbooks need to be purchased. The Vestal School District is helping to replace equipment.

No one was in the building at the time of the collapse.
