WASHINGTON (AP) - Officials in Washington are responding after two buildings sustained roof damage as severe weather moved through the area.

DC Fire and EMS spokesman Doug Buchanan said Thursday that authorities were called to Gonzaga College High School near Union Station and to an apartment building in the city’s southeast quadrant. He says there are no reports of injuries at either scene.

Buchanan says the three-story apartment building had its roof completely pulled off.

He described the damage at the school, a Catholic boys’ school, as a “partial roof collapse.”

School spokesman Steve Langevin says the roof of a church connected with the school, St. Aloysius, was damaged. Langevin says a small group of students was inside at the time but uninjured. Damage to the building, built in 1859, is being assessed.
