A piece of a structural panel from the roof of Wrigley Field "broke away" during Tuesday evening's blizzard, according to various reports.
Cubs spokesman Peter Chase told the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times that a section of the roof above the press box of the 97-year-old ballpark came loose in the severe winds of the snowstorm and scattered debris.
The panel, which is made of fiber board, broke off the roof, and the Cubs responded by monitoring the situation and working with the city to ensure that there were no public safety-related problems.
Chicago police told the Sun-Times that streets were closed from Addison Street between Sheffield Avenue and Racine Street and also on Clark Street between Addison Street and Waveland Avenue at about 5:30 p.m. CT because of the blowing debris.
