Metrodome roof collapses after storm

The roof of the Minnesota Vikings' stadium collapsed under the pressure of heavy snow Sunday, the result of storm that piled snow as high as two feet in some areas.

According to KARE 11, crews in charge of clearing snow were pulled off the roof of the Metrodome early Sunday as weather worsened and safety became a concern.

The storm is being recorded as one of the five worst storms in Twin Cities history, leaving 17 inches of snow in it's wake by Saturday night the Associated Press reported.

The Teflon roof collapsed around 5 a.m., after three panels tore under the weight of the snow that had accumulated overnight.
