Salisbury business damaged by heavy rain

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A popular hardware store in downtown Salisbury is shut down tonight after heavy rains flooded the roof and may have caused a crack in the wall.

Late this afternoon, workers at Bernhardt's hardware noticed water leaking from the roof, but the leak became heavier and heavier.

Customers and workers were evacuated.

The owner says an engineer will have to come in Wednesday to determine if the business can reopen.
