KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Heavy winds put a hole in the roof and caused a gas leak at a Kansas City manufacturing plant Thursday evening.

Officials at the Harley-Davidson Kansas City Vehicle Operations plant say high winds knocked over a rooftop HVAC unit at about 11 p.m., creating a hole in the roof and causing a gas leak.

No injuries were reported from either the hole in the roof or the gas leak.

Plant officials say second shift employees were sent home but first shift workers were able to report to the plant as planned.

The plant says they do not anticipate any impact to work schedules going forward.

The plant released this statement after the incident:

“Around 11 p.m. Thursday night, high winds knocked over a rooftop HVAC unit at Harley-Davidson’s Kansas City Vehicle Operations, creating an opening in the roof and causing a minor gas leak. There were no injuries and second shift employees were sent home.  First shift employees are to report to work as planned.  Repair crews are on the scene and we anticipate no impact to work schedules.”
