NWS storm survey team determined that the damage caused to the
Monmouth Fire Station`s roof was caused by 80-90 MPH straight line
winds from a supercell thunderstorm.  These winds caused two garage
doors to fail.  Once this happened, air rushed into the building and
took a 20 foot by 80 foot part of the roof off.
Shingle damage and minor tree damage was also found in this location
consistent with straight line winds.
