Minnesota Mall Roof Collapses Under Heavy Snow

A roof caved in at an Applebees restaurant in a mall in Duluth, Minnesota, on Tuesday, March 14, local authorities said.

According to the Duluth Fire Department, crews responded to a collapsed roof at 9 am on Tuesday. No injuries were reported and the mall was evacuated until further notice.

Footage captured by Kayla Tharaldson, a mall employee, shows the collapsed roof with a large amount of snow piled on top.

“I work at Old Navy, and we were just doing our usual pre-open tasks when it happened,” Tharaldson told Storyful.

On Monday, the National Weather Service said the city was close to breaking the record for their snowiest winter since 1885. Credit: Kayla Tharaldson via Storyful
