Chamber Of Commerce Building Damaged
LABELLE, FL. -- The LaBelle Chamber of Commerce will be closed due to damage from last week's hurricane winds and rain.
Diane Fidanza, Executive Director said, "Unfortunately our Chamber has serious damage to the building. We lost half of the roof which allowed water into the rafters which soaked the insulation and ceiling tiles, which collapsed. We are cleaning up and working towards fixing things. However, this will take time. Until further notice the Chamber will be closed. The damage we have is bad, but could have been a lot worse."
