The Netherlands – Supermarket roof collapses under heavy snowfall
The Netherlands – Supermarket roof collapses
Due to heavy snowfall in the south of the country, the roof of a supermarket in Tilburg collapsed. On the roof there is a big load of snow. Although no one was hurt, employees and shoppers were evacuated as a precaution from the building at the Jan Heijn Street. Bystanders warned that the roof of the nearby drugstore also threatens to collapse . In the province Brabant lots of snow fell on Friday night. During the day it continued to snow, causing dangerous situations on the roads and in forests. Also in Brabant, in Prinsenbeek and Oisterwijk, skating rinks have been vacated because of heavy snowfall.

It is a writing on the wall that on the first day of snowfall this year, December 27, 2014, already roofs are collapsing. As far as yet, snowfall in the Netherlands has been quite moderate compared to the snow that fell in other countries.
