In all honesty, there's no image from our childhoods more *iconic* than Troy Bolton, Gabriella Montez and the rest of the East High Wildcats dancing around the cafeteria and basketball court in High School Musical - which is why you're probably going to be devastated to hear that the IRL East High where HSM was filmed has been badly damaged in a flood.
KayCee Stroh, who played Martha Cox in the Disney Channel Original Movie, took to Instagram earlier this week to share photos of the $2-3 million of damage, which was caused by heavy rains that triggered flash flooding in the Salt Lake City area. (And OMG look away because it is truly heartbreaking.)
Sad day at East High today A rain storm has triggered a flash flood and it is estimated that they have 2-3 million dollars in damage already! Basement is completely flooded, here is the cafeteria and they are trying to save the famous basketball court as we speak! Fingers crossed for our iconic #easthighschool #wildcats #hsm
The worst part is that many of the areas where HSM's best scenes were shot, including the cafeteria, front of the school and basketball court, are among the most badly damaged. Luckily, the school district has released a statement saying they expect to finish cleanup before the 2017-2018 school year begins in August, according to Teen Vogue. Phew.
