EAST GRAND FORKS, MN (WDAZ-TV) - People across the area are still cleaning up and repairing damaged buildings after last week's severe winds.

In East Grand Forks, one building was hit particularly hard.

Demolition and re-construction is underway at the East Grand Inn after last week's severe wind storms completely ripped the roof off of the building.

Contractors are currently working on removing the former, damaged roof.

After they rip that out, they will start replacing it with a new one.

This is an expensive project, and the owners of the motel say it will cost over $300,000 to repair.

The motel is currently shut down to all guests, and neighbors say they are just glad the damage was only structural.

Owners say that they expect the motel will be closed for at least two more weeks, as crews continue to work on the roof of the building.
