Roof collapses condo crusher reports go here

Recommended Posts

with a lot of snow expected over the next two weeks, weakened structures are prone to collapse. Place links, pics stories in this thread.

 

@TollandAlert: #TollandFire responded to a roof collapse on detached garage today. Safely rake as much snow from your roof as possible. #IceDam #Collapse

This thread is probably a better idea than not for general awareness, during times when snow fall is abundant... However, some caveats to this is that we have for the most part dodged the higher moisture content snow types; that reduce significantly the load compared to 10::1 loading...  Also, I know in my town we have had a lot of wind with these events, and the roof tops are fairly well escarped -- if that's a word. 

 

If it warms and rains some how... yeah, that could ramp up the issue quickly.

The 1st Walmart in Raynham was shut down for a few days due to cracks showing in the walls.  Snow was removed from roof and I believe it's open now.

 

A Marshal's right down the street was also closed the other day for the same issue.
