Storm-damaged building demolished
The 300 block of East Washington Street reopened Saturday following demolition of a building damaged by Tropical Storm Isaias, according to a city press release.
The city originally said the building was damaged by a tornado spawned by Isaias, then said it was not storm related at all. However, further investigation determined it was damaged by the tropical storm, but not the associated tornado.
