Heavy snow leads to several roof collapses

WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -

Heavy snow has been a problem across New England this week as it just keeps falling.

The roof of a home in Worcester collapsed and it had to be taken down.

Neighbors said the home has been vacant for a year.

“It's such an inconvenience, they should have taken care of it. They’re a landlord, they should take care of their place. They should've hired someone to do something about it,” Amber Lavalle said.

In Framingham a barn collapsed Wednesday morning, trapping ten cows. Only eight survived.

“Four of them walked out on their own, we had to get them to stand up, but once we did, we used a series of straps and chains and got them on their four legs,” Deputy Chief Kevin Burns of the Framingham Fire Department said.

In Auburn, snow piled on top of this gas station canopy forced the station to close.

And in North Attleboro a roof collapsed from snow earlier in the week.

"Make sure your roofs are shoveled off. Call a professional if there's any sort of danger, we don't want anybody hopping on the roofs and falling off," Framingham Fire Dept. Deputy Chief Kevin Burns said.
