Roger Westhaver lives in the complex. He was stunned by what he saw.

“I kept saying ‘The sky is falling, the sky is falling,’” he said. “It’s like another world this happening. It seems like it happens somewhere else, it never happens in your neighborhood. But when it does, wow.”

Part of a balcony railing was damaged as the roof fell.

Westhaver said several residents have water damage in their apartments.

“It’s an emergency situation here for sure,” he said.
