Default Tanger Outlet Mall Roof Collapse

Just in case any of you were planning on coming up this weekend to go to the outlet mall. Looks like the other stores will be closed until Monday.

I do not believe snow caused that.
If it is a shitty design/construction does the contractor get sued?

I'm just curious why the pic doesn't have any snow is that was supposed to have collapsed the roof. There is none on it or at the base of it. Compare that to the pic of JohnnyJ's barn and it seems confusing.

If you look through the multiple pictures you will see that the front wall itself leaned into the building, pulling away from the tower and the front walkway roof.

In the article it basically says that the roof inside the building collapsed, they got everyone out, then the wall leaned.

It's a flat roof behind what the op thread pic. shows. Click on the link in op thread go to pic. 18, it shows the back wall leaning in.

It makes you wonder if they'll be inspecting all the other buildings out there of the same construction.

The roof behind the face had quite a bit of snow on it and not much pitch. I still am amazed that it was enough snow to collapse the roof though.
