Storm causes Wrigley Field damage

Associated Press

CHICAGO -- Wrigley Field has been damaged by a severe storm that caused tiles to fall from the top of the press box at the 97-year-old ballpark.

Emergency Management spokesman Roderick Drew says high winds from the snowstorm battering Chicago on Tuesday night sent the tiles flying. Two streets near the Chicago Cubs' famous stadium were closed to cars and pedestrians.

Drew says Clark Street between Grace and Roscoe streets and Addison Street between Sheffield and Racine avenues were closed until further notice.

Drew says high winds were keeping maintenance crews from repairing the tiles. He says crews from the city's building department were also on the site monitoring the situation.
