2 D.C. buildings damaged as rough weather moves through

WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials in Washington are responding after two buildings sustained roof damage as severe weather moved through the area on Thursday.

Authorities were called to Gonzaga College High School near Union Station and to an apartment building in the city's southeast quadrant, DC Fire and EMS spokesman Doug Buchanan said. There are no reports of injuries at either scene, he said.

The three-story apartment building had its roof completely pulled off, Buchanan said.

He described the damage at the school, a Catholic boys' school, as a "partial roof collapse."

School spokesman Steve Langevin said the roof of a church connected with the school, St. Aloysius, was damaged. A small group of students was inside at the time but uninjured, Langevin said. Damage to the building, built in 1859, is being assessed.
