The roof of the Piano Mill was lightweight, and Duffey says about a 100-foot-by-100-foot section fell into the showroom.

The bedazzled piano was featured in the HBO movie Behind The Candelabra starring Michael Douglas, and Matt Damon. According to the store's owner, the piano has 88,888 rhinestones and is worth about half a million dollars.

It's not certain if the piano is actually damaged, as no one is allowed inside until a structural engineer assesses the damage.
