Wind damages Spooky Nook sports complex building under construction in Hamilton

Strong winds overnight knocked down steel beams at a building that’s part of the Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill indoor sports complex under construction in Hamilton.

Spooky Nook owner Sam Beiler on Friday spoke about the damage during a Hamilton Community Authority meeting.

“Yesterday, the National Weather Service warned of high winds causing potential widespread damage, such as falling trees, power lines and more,” Beiler said. “Shortly after midnight this morning, the structural steel on Building 500 fell.”

Building 500 is at the southern tip of the complex west of North B Street.

“No one was on the property at the time, and there were no injuries,” he said. “An analysis of the cause and impact on the project’s schedule will occur over the next couple of days, at which time we’ll provide more information.”

Beiler said he expected engineers and insurance officials to be on site possibly as early as Friday.
