RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Extreme winds and rain shut down a Russellville mall on Wednesday night.
It all happened after the roof of one business was ripped off.
It is still unknown how much money it will cost property managers to fix the damage.
The roof was ripped off Planet Fitness, leaking water into the electrical wiring of the mall forcing everyone to close up shop.
"When I got to the mall there were fire engines- lights sirens, everywhere."
Gail Athes, the store a manager at Lefler's Boutique came back to this just hours after closing shop.
"I came in the back door, and there were panels falling out of the ceiling, there was water dripping everywhere…it was shocking," said Athes.
Firefighters dispatched to the Russellville city mall just after midnight.
