HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Officials responded to reports of extensive weather damage at the apartment blocks of 176 & 151 West Street in Holyoke. 

When Holyoke Police and Fire Department arrived on scene they found that an entire roof of one of the apartment buildings was carried off and collapsed on the street below. 

This resulted in multiple parked cars to be crushed from the impact and raining bricks to fall throughout both streets and sidewalks. 

There was a total of 47 apartments affected by this damage with over 141 residents displaced. 

The City of Holyoke and the Red Cross are assisting with the property's management company to help with their residents. 

There were two minor injuries reported from the incident with both being transported to the nearest hospital.
