01/11/14 125 W - + 3 - 3 Today's Building Collapse in Brier Creek


Posted by the News & Observer, this clip is described as "Ed Braz, professional wildlife photographer, captured video of a building under construction collapsing in high winds when a severe storm passed through the Raleigh, NC area Saturday afternoon, January 11, 2014."

It resulted in a collapsed building dispatch, with Raleigh Fire Department units including Engine 24, Ladder 6, Squad 14, Squad 15, and Rescue 1. Plus a full box alarm for EMS, if I recall correctly. All but the engine and ladder were cleared from the scene. No injuries.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport, but a stone's throw from this area, recorded a record wind gust of 86 miles per hour during the weather event. That's Hurricane-force, man. Read the News & Obsever story.
