Basilica of the Sacred Heart damaged in last night's storm
High winds in South Bend took off one of the small spires of the Basilica at Notre Dame yesterday evening. I haven't seen any pictures of the actual damage yet (UPDATE: See here for pictures.), just of the bricks on the ground, but it seems that the spire in question was one of the four small spires that stand at the base of the steeple. (Clearly visible in the banner graphic below:)
The Notre Dame press release doesn't add much, except to say that a small window was also damaged in the storm.
