Roof blows off of Cafe New Orleans

The high winds today have taken a toll on the roof of Cafe New Orleans on William St. I came out of Hyperion, and the flashing lights of the cop car got my attention. I could see yellow tape blocking off part of the block. Everyone was standing there wondering if there was a fire as the ladder truck had been brought out. Then we saw the roof lifting off of the building. Hopefully they will be able to contain any damage. I was able to get a few snaps before having to head home for a previous engagement.

Some of the bricks from under the lip of the roof had given way and were on the street. Didn't see any injuries.

[update] the roof did not come off, and thanks to some quick work was nailed back down but will require some rework to finish.
