PARMA, MO (KFVS) -

Parma residents and officials are left assessing the damage to city hall and other buildings in town because of Tuesday's storms.

High winds blew off part of the roof on the biggest half of city hall and Community Building in Parma.

"About eighty percent of the roof is gone," said Mayor Ramsey. "It was pretty scary."

Mayor Randall Ramsey says the city can still conduct city business in the undamaged part of the building.

"The library and city offices are still open," he said. "However, some events that use the building may have to be canceled or moved."

Some of the historical pictures in the building were taken off the walls because of water entering the structure into its biggest room.

A firefighter was hurt in the process of removing the pictures. Mayor Ramsey believes that firefighter has a broken leg.

"We planned on tearing it down," said owner, David Mims. "We just didn't think it would come down like this."

The bricks fell all over the street and the city is asking MoDot to come in and help remove parts of the damage.
