Roofs torn off

Roofs torn off: Among the dozens of buildings around town seriously damaged in last night's sudden storm were the Duneland Resale Shop (above) and the old Pioneer Lumber building (most recently housing the Swing Club (below)). The Resale Shop’s roof was partially torn off. Here Craig Davis and Jim Thomas of Orbesen Construction of Gary, work to evaluate and cover the damaged roof of the Resale Shop. Just across the railroad tracks to the northeast, the old Pioneer Lumber building (below) looks like nothing so much as a sardine can torn open along one side. (Tribune photos by Margaret L.
