Vandals damage Colo. church roof, flood building
LOVELAND, Colo. – A Loveland church is drying out after vandals got on the roof, tore away shingles, punched through a skylight and ran a garden hose inside, flooding the building.
Members of the Zion Lutheran Church found a “whirling, splashing pool” when they showed up for services Sunday. Several inches of water covered the floor.
The damage occurred Saturday night or Sunday morning.
Church members estimate that more than $5,000 of damage was done. The organ and grand piano escaped damage.
A restoration company is working on drying out the walls and floors and repairing the roof and ceiling.
