Minneapolis Metrodome Roof Collapses



    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.
