Safeway Roof Collapse in San Jose During Storm

On Thursday, December 11th the Bay Area braced for one of the heaviest storms in decades. Heavy downpour and strong winds were ideal conditions for the massive flooding, power outages and atrocious traffic conditions. One major consequence of the storm was a collapsed roof at a Safeway store in San Jose.

Fire officials also said employees were able to get everyone out of the building before the large section of roof collapsed shortly before 4 p.m. One person inside the grocery store’s produce section suffered minor leg injuries. The collapse exposed a 50-square-foot portion of the store.

The building has been “red tagged,” by city building inspectors, which means the structure is too dangerous to inhabit at the moment.
