Winds rip part of roof off UB Bookstore on North Campus

A part of the roof of the bookstore on the University at Buffalo North Campus blew off Sunday afternoon as high winds raked the region.

A portion of the rubber membrane roof was ripped off the building in Amherst at about 1:50 p.m., according to Cory Nealon, a UB spokesman.

Nealon said the bookstore was closed at the time, and no one was in the building. No students or staff were injured.

There was no damage reported to the store inventory and only a portion of the building was exposed to the elements.

The bookstore is owned and operated by Follett Corp., independent of UB.

University Police notified Follett of the damage and university employees are fencing off the area surrounding the bookstore and trying to secure debris.
