[G2:102 class=g2image_float_right]Monday afternoon’s storm left the roof on Cedaridge Ministries looking something like one of those old can of tuna where you had to use a key to roll back the metal lid to open it.
This was the analogy Keith Decker, President and Director of Cedaridge Ministries, used to describe the wind damage on the building.
The roof on nearly half the building curled up and peeled off about 3 p.m.
“We are just thankful that no one was hurt,” Decker said.
A church youth group composed of students from North Carolina was visiting Cedaridge at the time of the disaster, and helped with the clean-up and repair work Tuesday.
Decker said Tuesday morning that the main priority was to get the debris and portions of damaged roof off that day, and get plastic down for a temporary roof before more rains come.
He is hoping to have a more permanent solution later in the week.
There is currently no estimate on the damage, but Decker said that the roof appears to be the only casualty and the rest of the building was fine.
Decker said the Kentucky Baptist Association and others have contacted him offering to help with the repairs.
“A lot of groups have stepped in and said we will be glad to help,” he added.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to help pay for the new roof or wanting to help with the repairs can contact Cedaridge Ministries at 549-1372.
