Asbestos removal complete at Southwest Elementary

Asbestos has been removed from floor tiles in eight Southwest Elementary School classrooms.

Assistant Superintendent Joseph Cassimere said the classrooms in the Opelousas school are back to normal.

Asbestos can cause cancer and has been banned in many products and uses, but it's not illegal.

Cassimere says the asbestos in the floor tiles at Southwest was not harmful, but was replaced as a precaution.
