Section of roof membrance blows off Arlim Co.
Damaging winds tore a section of membrane off the roof of Arlim Co. building on Main Street in Stephenville around noon Sunday.
A weather observer at the Stephenville Airport said easterly winds with gusts up to 101.86 km/h were recorded at the time.
The Bay St. George RCMP were on the scene and a Newfoundland Power crew was expected to remove some of the roof membrane that was hanging over power lines.
The bulk of the material that was ripped from the roof landed between Arlim Co. and nearby Ben’s Pharmacy
