Farm building collapses
WEST PENN TWP., Pa. -

A building crumbled under the weight of the melting snow at a farm in Schuylkill County.

The collapse happened at the C & R Farm off Route 443 in West Penn Township.

Owner Chester Snyder says he had three tractors and two bailers in the building, and some are now buried in snow.

This isn't the first time Snyder became the victim of Mother Nature. He says this is the third building on his property to cave-in from snow in the last 20 years.

"It seems like every 10 years of my life I go through this," Snyder said.
