A Queens school is in need of some repairs following a round of storms early Friday morning.

The Department of Education says lightning struck PS 40 at the corner of the building, located at 110th and Union Hall in Jamaica.

The strike sent bricks flying up to 75 feet away.

School officials say the damage did not affect classes.
