(KMOV)-- Intense storms ripped through Ste. Genevieve, Mo. Tuesday night, damaging several local homes and businesses.
Wind shredded about three-fourths of the sheet metal roof off a union building around 8:15 p.m., and wrapped it around an active power line.
The electric company disconnected the two when they arrived about two hours later.
The union manager said that the roof was bolted down.
An old chimney and bricks blew off the building, as well. They were scattered around the ground, and the roof was still wrapped around the wires as of Wednesday morning.
