LOUISVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — A cold front that moved through central and north Mississippi early today rips the roof off a Louisville apartment complex.
Strong winds ripped part off the roof off the Revival Apartments on Beal Street at about 1-30 this morning, tossing it through some power lines and into trees behind the complex. That knocked power out for about an hour in the area. Residents helped clean up the debris to help reduce safety hazards. Winds of up to 60 miles per hour also blew over a gazebo in town and scattered debris throughout the city and toppled some trees. No injuries were reported.
<”Yeah, the winds woke me up and then I received a call from the Louisville Police Department that we had some damage over here on one of our own buildings,” explained Kenny White, manager at Rivival Apartments. “Basically this one building, roof damage. Nothing structurally, just the metal on the roof and some shingle damage.”
In Clay County, a car wash had part of its roof torn off and trees and a few homes were damaged in the western part of the county.
