WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) -

Walnut Ridge Mayor Charles Snapp said extra barricades have been placed around a building downtown on the corner of Abbey and West Elm.

Mayor Snapp said because of the high winds that blew through the city Tuesday afternoon, they blocked off another 50 feet of sidewalk for safety.

He said more bricks have fallen in the back of the building.

The city put up fencing around the building earlier this month.
