Ice, Snow from Winter Storms Collapse Several Roofs in Show-Me State

DECEMBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 7:54 a.m. CST

 

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Several buildings in southwest Missouri have buckled under the weight of snow and ice that fell late last week, in one case injuring several horses.

A 14-year-old girl was feeding her mother's horses yesterday near Jasper when the roof collapsed under the weight of snow and ice. Twenty-one horses were in the barn when wood and metal began falling, and at least half were injured.

Volunteer firefighters used trucks, tractors and chain saws to help clear the debris.

At least three other barns in the area also collapsed, one of them a structure that housed seven circus horses. None of the animals was hurt.

In Lamar, the roof of a plant belonging to furniture-maker O'Sullivan Industries collapsed. No one was hurt.
