Unusual Weather Damages Wyoming National Park Building
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Officials at a western Wyoming national park are unsure if a recently damaged roof will delay a preserve center's spring reopening.
An unusual amount of snow water, rain and warm temperatures at Grand Teton National Park may have crushed the roof of the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center. The center is a popular attraction at the park and was opened in 2007.
Park officials say maintenance workers spotted the damage Thursday. They say no one was in the building when the damage occurred.
Before crews can work on the roof, they must clear the snow on roads that lead to the building.
The crews will also be checking to see if the building suffered any other damages.
