(KMOV) -- Major repairs are needed at a Hazelwood condominium complex after strong winds tore off a 60-foot section of roof Thursday night.

According to the Hazelwood Fire Department, the violent winds hit the Morningside Condominiums shortly after 7 p.m.

No one was hurt, but the damage to the roof was so extensive that Ameren Missouri crews had to shut off power to the building.

Residents of the four-condo units were forced to leave until repairs are completed.

While inspecting the damage to the roof, fire officials say they noticed evidence of significant long-term leaks and mold problems.

News 4 is asking the condominium owners if the wind damage could have been avoided if the roof had been properly maintained.
