Dome Collapse

December 12, 2010 by USA Post 

Dome Collapse, (AP) – More than 1,000 flights were canceled at Chicago and the roads are closed in several states as a powerful winter storm roared through the Midwest.

Officials say more than 900 flights were canceled at O’Hare International Airport and more than 250 were canceled at Midway International Airport. Both airports also reported delays.

The main roads in several states have been closed due to poor driving conditions and accidents. A section of Interstate 80 in north-central Illinois has been arrested after the pileup of several cars west of Peru.

The storm system dumped nearly two feet of snow in parts of Minnesota and caused the tire, Teflon roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis to collapse. The Minnesota Vikings-New York Giants game was moved to Detroit tomorrow night’s Ford Field.

At least one weather-related death was reported. The authorities of St. Cloud, Minnesota, for example, a man died of a heart attack after collapsing while snow blowing his entry.
