Gusty wind pushed through Madison Sunday after a strong round of thunderstorms moved through. 

Chippington Towers Building #1 lost hundreds of bricks from its facade as winds gusted over 40mph. 

Senior citizens and disabled residents living there heard a crash as the bricks tumbled down but fortunately no one was injured.

We spoke to LHP Capital which owns and manages the building. They say the facade was being renovated and the damaged area was a construction zone that was already blocked off. 

Some construction equipment was damaged and a nearby unoccupied vehicle has some minor damage. They plan to continue work on the building after the bricks are cleaned up.
