Part of the roof collapsed at this house in Southeast D.C.
By Patrick Madden
The record setting snow storm may be over, but roof collapses remain a concern for authorities in the district.
A D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman says firefighters have responded to five or six roof collapses today, and several dozen since the storm began last week. Most of the collapses took place in southeast D.C.
At one house in southeast, the roof of the front porch now hangs vertically over the front of the home. The front yard is draped in yellow police tape.
Authorities say residents should not try and remove the snow from their rooftops, but to call a professional instead.
