The violent thunderstorm we had last night toppled the smaller steeple on the church building on Sixth and Columbia streets. This was the scene early this morning.
Originally St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, the building now houses Henry Hirsch's Waterfront Studios.
Thanks to Jamison Teale and Timothy Dunleavy for alerting Gossips to this catastrophe.
