CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, January 28, 2016 Page 3 Snow removal can prevent roof collapse State transportation and public safety officials con- tinue their aggressive, around-the-clock response to this weekend's winter storm. As storm cleanup continues, Virginians are encouraged to safely clear excess snow from roofs, decks and other areas of concern to prevent damage or collapse. As of Sunday morning, Jan. 24, the state's Emergency Operations Center had received multi- ple reports of collapsed or damaged buildings due to excessive snow and ice. For example, residents are sheltering in place frllow- ing a partial collapse of a retirement home in Burke, Va. A shelter opened in Prince William County for 55 displaced residents from a collapsed apartment building. There was also a reported building collapse of the front wall of an empty strip-shopping cen- ter in Stafford County. According to the National Weather Service, preliminary reports show some regions of Virginia received more than two feet of snow accumulation during this storm. Flat and low pitched roofs, most often found on industrial buildings, but als0 used in ce~ain home designs, are at the greatest risk of buck- ling under heavy snow and ice accumulations. Also consider that barns and other ~agricultural buildings could present safety haz- ards to animals and humans. For Homes Most homes have sloped roofs; therefore, the risk posed by snow accu- mulations is less than a flat roof. If you have a flat roof on' your home, pre-manu- factured home or a portion of your home, monitor the ceiling. Look for the fol- lowing signs of roof dis- tress: Sagging ceiling beneath the flat roof. Leaking water drip- ping through the ceiling. New cracks on your ceiling drywall or plaster. Popping, cracking or creaking sounds. Doors and/or win- dows that can no longer be opened or closed. Leaking water drip- ping through the ceiling. For Commercial Buildings There are many vari- ables, but most commercial buildings are designed to accommodate a roof snow load of 24 inches of dense, compacted snow. Pay attention to the following warning signs of roof dis- tress: Sagging roof mem- bers including steel bar joists, metal decking, wood rafters, wood trusses and plywood sheathing. Leaking water drip= ping through the ceiling. Popping, cracking and creaking sounds. Sagging ceiling tiles and/or sagging sprinkler lines and sprinkler heads. Doors and/or win- dows that can no longer be opened or closed. Building Safety If you notice one or more of the roof distress warning signs listed above, evacuate the home or building immediately. Have a professional licensed contractor remove all snow from every roof surface, including roof overhangs and covered porches. Falls from roofs and possible exposure to electrical wires while on the roof are serious haz- ards. Melting snow can create puddles of water, which poses a risk to roofs. Clear gutters, drains and down- spouts or ice and debris so that water from melting snow has a path to flow away from house or build- ing. Clear snow an ice away from exhaust vents that go through exterior walls. If your roof collapsed, evacuate and call 91,1. If you see a collapsed build- ing that has been roped off, stay back and call 911. If you are concerned about the structural integrity of a building, Contact a licensed structural engineer, build- ing inspector or other qual- ified individual.
