The Bells are Falling in Portland

The bell at St. Dominic's Church in Portland (now home to the Maine Irish Heritage Center) has taken a tumble.
The bell has fallen at least two floors in the tower of St. Dominic's Church. And the impact appears to have caused structural damage from the top of the tower to the basement.

Firefighters are worried that part of the building could fall, and so police closed down State street between Spring and Danforth streets. Some people who live in 3 nearby apartment buildings have had to leave their rooms temporarily. [Link]
