TROUTDALE, OR (KPTV) - The roof of a Safeway store collapsed in Troutdale on Monday.

Emergency crews responded to the store on Southwest Cherry Park Road at around 11:30 a.m.

Deputies said everyone made it out of the store safely and there were no immediate reports of injuries.

Air 12 flew over the scene Monday afternoon.

Investigators believe the roof likely buckled under the weight of snow and ice from the winter storm.

Firefighters said a 40 foot by 100 foot section of the ceiling and roof came down into the store. The collapse happened near the cash register area toward the front of the store.

Makes me wonder about building codes after this storm. Roof load design is there for a purpose, and it takes into consideration quite a bit of overload. It's not like Portland is Nebraska.

I never could understand why the large stores have the flat roofs Wal mart is the same way.
