Structural engineers will asses the damage to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Lansing on Friday.

A crack was found in the facade Wednesday.  That, coupled with the strong winds, had the staff and congregation worried a wall on the 102-year-old church might collapse. 

Construction crews have braced the wall and the city has closed part of Ottawa Street as a precaution.
