High winds damage roof of Spicer business


SPICER - High winds last night ripped off a portion of a steel roof from the Spicer Power Products building, located on Kandiyohi County Road 10 west of Spicer.

With westerly winds howling at 30-40 mph most of the day and peak gusts of around 60 mph around 6:30 p.m., the west side of the building took a beating as the steel roof was peeled back and deposited in the parking lot, along with insulation that was scattered on the property.
