Casino Roof Collapse
Catoosa, OK – Snowstorm causes partial roof collapse of casino
CATOOSA, Okla. (AP) A massive snowstorm that hit Oklahoma caused the partial roof collapse of the Hard Rock Casino in Catoosa this morning. No injuries are reported.
One witness told KOTV in Tulsa that he saw water leaking from the ceiling, and then someone screamed "Run!" and that's when a portion of the roof collapsed.
Emergency officials were at the scene of the collapse.
A major snowstorm is socking Oklahoma, paralyzing its two major cities and dumping up to 20 inches of snow, sleet and ice across the state and region.
