Wow, glad no one was killed in this incident. I don't know why they didn't build it like a pole barn, at least the walls would not have tipped over so easily and cause the roof to come down like that. I guess OSHA and who ever is going to do the investigation will get to the cause.

There was mention of wind being a factor but there was only a flood watch in effect and I didn't notice any gusts nearby but that's just from my spot in town.

Either way that is going to be an expensive cleanup operation. Speedy recovery to the ones shipped to Rochester General.

it would appear that with it being a car dealership that most of the interior space of the building would be open area

without interior walls to keep the structure from 'racking' a modest wind could cause the large roof structure to over power the exterior walls leading to the unfortunate collapse

bracing should have been put in place until the entire structure was complete

temporarily bracing the exterior walls to add rigidity until all the exterior walls were completely finished
