Roofs across Bend, Oregon, including the roof of a school gymnasium, collapsed under the weight of heavy snow on Thursday, January 12.
About two feet of snow fell in the Bend area in just a few days, prompting officials to warn about the potential for collapses. They encouraged people to clear their roofs of snow. Roofs at Bend commercial buildings also collapsed from the weight of the snow, as seen in this drone footage.
After the collapse at Highland Elementary School, the school district decided to close all schools for the day. Credit: Michael Albright via Storyful
