The Upstate fell victim to heavy rainfall and gusty winds this weekend as Hurricane Nate barreled through the area.

Laurens Academy said on Facebook that it would be closed Monday after sustaining some exterior damage to its gym, playground and athletic fields, and Town and Country Mobile Home Park also sustained extreme damage.
