High winds damage capitol dome covering

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The strong winds that moved through Charleston Monday night damaged the protective covering on the state capitol dome.

The material that covers a massive scaffolding project was ripped by the wind.

The covering is in place to protect the dome where large limestone blocks are being removed, repaired and put back into place. The covering is designed to keep the rain from going inside the dome.
