A roof collapse at a multi-bay garage on Mount Pleasant Street in Meriden Thursday afternoon did not result in any injuries but is a reminder for residents to be wary in current conditions.

Several cumulative snowstorms and recent warm temperatures and rain can have deteriorating affects on roofs, particularly ones that are flat or lack proper drainage.

In such instances, it is important to clear roofs of snow before further rain and melting cause it to become denser and heavier.
