Spectacular Footage: Metrodome Roof Collapse Video from the Inside Metrodome



(CNN) — A powerful snowstorm barrelled east through the Midwest on Sunday, bringing with it more precipitation and gusty winds and leaving behind a trail of significant damage, large snow drifts and subarctic temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.

Roy Terwilliger, chairman of the Minneapolis Metro Sports Commission — the group that oversees the Metrodome — said the heavy snow and cold, high winds “was too much pressure on the dome and several panels on the Teflon roof were caused to rip. Obviously the weight of the snow would affect how much air pressure is necessary to keep that roof up. Something caused that air pressure not to be strong enough or high enough to keep that roof at its normal position.”
