BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Strong winds are being blamed for the collapse of two walls at separate businesses on Friday, one in the Town of Batavia and the other in Cheektowaga.
A building belonging to Koolatron Beverage Coolers on Commerce Drive in Batavia was damaged when a portion of the wall came down. Employees say they heard a noise and looked back to see the wall falling, then ran out of the building.
In Cheektowaga, a 200- to 300-foot section of well fell at a warehouse behind the former Rosa's store on Union Road. An employee who opened a garage door at the warehouse for Home Furniture Gallery and Christmas Central.com says a big gust of wind came through, followed by a loud noise. Workers covered the massive hole with plywood.
