A roof collapsed at a restaurant during lunch hour Monday, killing a woman and injuring nine other people, authorities said.

The cause of the accident at the single-story brick building was not immediately known, Fire Capt. Doyce Ewing said. But wind gusts in town reached 61 mph.

Nine people were hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening, authorities said.

“At this time we believe we have all people accounted for,” Ewing said.
