    Where is the story about the Crowne Plaza - Campbell House? About a third of the roof was blown off last night with dozens of cars damaged. There is water damage in many areas of the hotel. There was damage in several ares of Mason Headley and Parkside. The low areas of the golf are flooded. Trees are down in several areas.
