Collapse



Several buildings collapsed under the weight of snow, including a portion of Trinity Baptist Church on Monroe Street. Fortunately, the main sanctuary appears unharmed, but a gymnasium on the back of the building was completely destroyed. The Rosauer's at Five Mile also collapsed.

UPDATE: Another roof collapsed over the pool at Global Fitness in north Spokane, nearly crushing three swimmers. Thankfully, everyone escaped injury. Read more about this HERE.







I drive by Trinity Baptist every day on my way to work, but I didn't even know about the collapse until I read it in the paper. The part of the building that faces the street is unharmed.

It's quite scary actually. I've seen dozens of people shoveling their rooves in the last 24 hours.

Just got word that another major building in Spokane collapsed under the weight of snow. The roof over the pool at Global Fitness caved in and nearly crushed three swimmers. Thankfully, everyone escaped injury.

My wife and I used to have a membership at Global Fitness. We often took our kids swimming on cold winter nights.
