Roof of Anchorage sports dome collapses under snow – Alaska … – Alaska Dispatch News

On Sunday, The Dome — usually a gleaming white structure 85 feet high at its tallest point — was completely collapsed. Chunks of insulation could be seen scattered around the wreckage, and vending machines, bleachers and turf playing fields were exposed to the still-falling snow. The huge fabric covering that inflates over the field like a balloon was crumpled like a piece of paper, ripped in places.
