VIRGINIA BEACH - The stormy weather damaged a Va. Beach business, but it's still open.

The strong wind ripped metal beams of the roof at Atlantic Glass right out of the concrete walls.

Jessie Petitte called owner Ray Brown around 1:00 a.m. to tell him what happened.

"I was sleeping last night and I heard this loud noise. I looked out the window and Atlantic Glass's roof is like flying in the air and the cinder blocks are falling, it was freaky," he said.

Despite the damage, Brown has his shop open.  He's getting estimate to repair the roof, but he thinks it might need to be completely replaced.
