EMA Director warns of possible roof collapses
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 12:00 AM
Van Wert County EMA Director Rick McCoy is warning building owners that accumulating snow is increasing the weight load on roofs all over the area. In many places, two feet of snow were soaked with rain last weekend, increasing the weight on roofs not designed to handle the load. With another couple of inches of snow predicted for the weekend, McCoy is urging residents and building-owners to try to safely get some snow off the week. A building in Delphos suffered roof collapse over the weekend and the possibility of other roofs collapsing is real.
