MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minneapolis Metrodome, where the
Minnesota Vikings play, has collapsed during a snowstorm.
The Metrodome is operated by the Metropolitan Sports Facilities
Commission. Its executive director, Bill Lester, said Sunday
morning the damage is being assessed and the agency will issue a
statement later. He says he has no details yet on what happened.
Minneapolis and much of the upper Midwest have been hit by a
blizzard that has dumped up to 20 inches of snow in some areas.
The Vikings' Sunday NFL football game against the New York
Giants had already been pushed to Monday. It is not clear what will
happen to the schedule now.
