Stormy Tuesday - Collapsed Building on 205


Construction started a little over a month ago on this metal building just north of town on highway 205. From the way it looked, it seemed like it might be a new big fireworks store -- and probably would've been done just in time for July 4th....

The metal roofing had all been completed, but the sides were still pretty open when I drove into work this morning. Maybe in this pre-construction stage it was top-heavy? Who knows - but we had a big storm roll through town today while I was at work - and on my way home, the building was collapsed...

The people in the photos are probably the owners inspecting the damage....which is sad, cause they weren't too far from having it done...

Can you believe all the storms lately? It's awful!!!
It's sad that they lost it - I hate seeing that happen.

Ouch! That must be such a hugh disappointment for them. I wonder if the wind got under the roof and twisted everything around.
