Roofs Collapsing

Flagstaff AZ – Flagstaff police Lt. Ken Koch says no injuries have been reported. He says the damage ranges from roof collapses at a fabric store and bookstore to leaky roofs at restaurants and compromised structural integrity at other buildings.

He says authorities and structural engineers are conducting building inspections Friday.

He advised employees against getting on rooftops to shovel snow without an inspection. Flat roofs are most at risk for damage.

A powerful winter storm has dumped around 4 feet of snow in the Flagstaff area this week.

So far, roof collapses have been reported at Bookman's, Little Caeser's Pizza and Jo-Ann fabric store, and Jay Lively according to the Mayor's Twitter.
