CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A brick wall fell during the wild weather this past weekend. Several cars are now totaled because of the incident.

It happened outside of Ray’s Bike Park in Cleveland.

Michael McGlynn said he was inside this building Sunday night as the fierce winds battered the neighborhood.

“I love this place,” he said. "I come here as much as I can.

He gave us video of his son inside the park, but said he was exercising with a friend Sunday.

He said, “It’s like riding outside without having the elements.”

But Sunday night, the elements ultimately lead to the demise of his SUV.

He said over the PA system, staff asked riders who’d parked on the right side of the building to come outside.

“We come outside and we’re like, ‘Oh boy!’ There was a building laying on our vehicles,” McGlynn said.

He was one of five people who found their vehicles damaged. He said he wasn’t able to do anything at first.

“There was still debris in the air, because it was so windy,” he said.

On Monday, Cleveland 19 reached the owner of the building.

She insisted there was no issue with the wall before last night.

Wild winds relentlessly bumped and banged against it for hours until it crumbled.

“She’s very apologetic and so far we’re trying to work with the insurance companies,” McGlynn said.

The owner said she has insurance and plans to fix her property.

So does McGlynn.

“It’s kinda disheartening that had to happen to it,” he said.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the mess.
