“Most of these buildings are about 100 years old so they’ve withstood about 100 years of weather so it’s kind of sad,” said one resident.

The building survived storms for decades but on Thursday, it was just too much.

“It’s blowing stuff over at my work, ladders tipped over, there was just debris going everywhere,” said resident Adrian Kenyon who lives off Highway 52.
