Section of Roof Blown Off Condos in Mandan

Posted:

The wind literally blows the roof off some apartments in Mandan.

Nine people have been forced to leave their homes after big pieces of sheet metal were ripped from rooves near Raging Rivers.
           Residents were warned to look out for flying debris in the area including insulation and plywood.
           Firemen went door to door asking other area residents to stay indoors until the wind died down.
Those living on North Bay Drive are required to stay out of the building the rest of the day.
It's really hard to understand how it happened with a flat roof.  Evidently with the alleyways the wind must have came through here and swirled.  And somehow or another got enough uplift to take the roof off.  I've never seen anything like this," says Morton County Emergency Manager Tom Doering.

 Crews from J-Cole Construction are scheduled to clean up the mess.
Work should take the crews two to three days to clean up, and another week or so to get the roof back on the condos.

Definitely more slow paced-definitely have to be careful out here cutting this stuff up.>> says Jeremiah Cole, J-Cole Construction

While Cole's crews are fixing up the apartments, people who live there will need a place to stay.  

Two families are staying at 1st Luthern Church, another family is staying at a local motel and another family is working with the Red Cross to find a place.          

Those needing a place to stay tonight can check in with the Red Cross at First Lutheran Church in Mandan.

It's located at 408 9th Street NW.
