A strong storm that hit the Morgantown, West Virginia area on Sunday evening tore roofs off buildings.

The roof of the former Ramada Inn on Scott Avenue is damaged, and a county commissioner says a large air conditioning unit moved about 100 feet.

Tom Bloom said the building had recently been turned into a non-profit centre, aiming to help people facing issues such as homelessness and substance use disorders. The multi-million dollar project is a collaboration between the city, county and West Virginia University.

Twenty-one people were then staying in the building, in apartments and an emergency shelter.

They are now temporarily in hotels.

“The good news is everyone is safe, everyone is fine,” Bloom said. “Now we just have to fix the building. It’s just money, and we will continue to help our residents.

A few miles away, part of the roof of Mona Supply Company Incorporated, a beer distributor, also blew off.

The owner said the storm brought heavy rain and winds over a period of about 30 minutes.

The National Weather Service said an investigation into the damage is scheduled for later Monday. The results of this investigation should be known this afternoon.
