Winds were so intense early Wednesday morning the roof of St. Aloysius Church on Cleveland Drive didn't just blow off, it traveled over a block and landed in someone's yard.

About one-third of the rubber roof and several bricks blew off from the roof around 1:00 a.m.

A maintenance man at St. Aloysius said it "looked like a warzone" this morning.
