Roof peels off Riverdale Shops, closing stores early

Posted: Updated:
WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Crews worked to repair the rear roof of the Riverdale Shops in West Springfield Monday night after severe winds peeled it off the building.

West Springfield police said six stores had to be closed early because it was too dangerous. They said about 200 feet of roof was peeled off the building.

Police told CBS 3 there was construction going on and that may have contributed to how easy the roof peeled back.

That area of the shops is blocked off.
