Beloved Hamburg Building Collapses In The Middle Of The Storm
The storm that was predicted is the storm that was delivered. At least one building in the village of Hamburg partially collapsed under the snow.
Weather in Buffalo is weird. It almost feels like you could be on one side of the street and see absolutely nothing, but then on the other side of the street find yourself buried in snow in a matter of hours.
For a week now, meteorologists have been predicting that a massive snow storm was coming to Western New York. It started late on Thursday evening in the south towns and continued throughout the day on Friday until late into the evening.
Unfortunately, at least one building couldn't handle the pressure.
According to the Southtowns Scanner there was a partial building collapse in the village of Hamburg late on Friday night.
As the night went on, more information came out that it was, in fact, the building that is home to Braymiller's Lanes and Master's Barbeque.
They ended up having to evacuate the nearby buildings for their safety due to the smell of natural gas and concern that it could cause problems with them too.
A picture this morning shows that the roof completely collapsed with the weight of the snow.
Multiple people jumped into the comments to say how much they loved that place. They used to bowl there in the past, or that they still did up until now.
There will be more to this story. What will happen to the building? Can it be salvaged?
