Mary Copple listened all night Tuesday to the sounds of her roof being ripped apart.
“My fiancé comes in and he goes, ‘Bad news — you’re starting to lose your roof,’” she said Wednesday afternoon with a laugh. “We just watched all night, and heard bangs and the shingles flying in the air and going across the street.”
The same 50 to 60 mile-per-hour winds that thrashed Copple’s home in the Inlet Woods subdivision in northwest Kenai caused major damage across the Peninsula until midday Wednesday.
