The CN Tower Has Closed Due To Extremely Dangerous Conditions featured image

Workers examine a hole on top of the Rogers Centre as the area around the CN Tower is closed off due to reports of falling ice in Toronto on Monday, April 16, 2018.

This would be the third game cancellation in a row for the Blue Jays, who had games Saturday and Sunday against the Cleveland Indians cancelled at Progressive Field due to heavy rain.

A Kansas City sportswriter considers it karma that Monday night's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and visiting Royals was postponed after nasty weather damaged the roof at Rogers Centre.

"It's hard to describe, it was really loud", Miller said.

The major storm is winding down for this Monday
Another shot of cooler air will move in behind that cold front and drop our temperatures back into the 50s for your Thursday. However later in the night the rain will clear to scattered showers over the western half of the country.

Miller said pieces of ice crashed to the turf in right field along with some insulation from the roof. The San Diego Padres, for instance, made a decision to take a light shot at other teams across the league, advertising on Twitter that their game would be "played as scheduled" with an image of the picturesque scene at their ballpark.

Fans with tickets to Tuesday's game will be able to attend both games of the double-header, the team said. They later added that they were working to fix damage to the roof caused by falling ice.

If the team thought they'd get a break by starting a series at the indoor Rogers Center in Toronto, those dreams were dashed Monday.

Craig Dawson missed the ball on a challenge against Herrera, and Manchester United deserved a penalty. Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring in the 22nd minute.

Coincidentally, the last time the Blue Jays canceled a game due to roof damage was in April 2001 against the Royals.

Instead, the rain and sleet storm that has ravaged Toronto and Southern Ontario throughout the weekend resulted in several leaks in the roof of the domed facility.

By late Monday afternoon, provincial power utility Hydro One said crews had restored power to more than 300,000 customers across much of the province.
