Monday night's Major League Baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals has been postponed because of damage to the roof at Rogers Centre. Around 5:30 p.m. the decision was made to postpone the game.

Earlier on Monday, the Blue Jays said via Twitter that they were "working to fix damage" to the roof of their stadium, originally named the Skydome when it opened in 1989.

The Blue Jays were scheduled to play a weekend series at Cleveland's Progressive Field, but the Saturday and Sunday games were rescheduled due to rain.

"If you come to a dome and get banged, something ain't right", Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters (via ESPN).

The National Weather Service on Saturday placed parts of San Diego County under a high wind watch beginning Sunday night. We could see an inch and a half of snow by the time this massive storm system moves east.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.

The team tweeted earlier Monday that it was working to fix the hole, which was caused by a piece of ice falling from the neighboring CN Tower.

Toronto has been in the grip of an ice storm since the start of the weekend, causing power outages and scrambling travel plans, including for thousands of commuters Monday.

The extreme weather sweeping through the GTA is playing havoc with one of Toronto's top tourist attractions.

It's only the second time in the stadium's history that the team has had to postpone a game.
