According to Nicolette Brennan, public information manager with the City of Cape Girardeau, the visual inspections continued on Friday with 39 homes affected by issues ranging from a few missing shingles to significant roof damage. The number of affected homes is subject to change as they collect information from inspections, residents and partners.
