Heavy Snow Comes Crashing Through K-Mart Plaza Roof in Weirton, WV


Hibbett Sports at the K-Mart Plaza was just one out of three stores forced to close their doors Thursday after snow and water came crashing through the ceiling.

It happened overnight Wednesday, when the weight of the snow became too much for the roof, causing moderate damage, mainly in the front of the store. Trash cans have been placed around the store to collect water dripping from the ceiling.

So far, the only store open is Dollar Tree. Employees have numerous fans drying the ground, have hung up tarps and were spraying micro-ban to prevent mold.

It is uncertain when everything will be cleaned up, but crews are working to get every store repaired.
