A Main Street store awning collapsed this morning, Tuesday, Feb. 18, apparently under the weight of heavy snow buildup. People came out of surrounding stores to see the damage. One man said he had just finished walking under the awning when it collapsed. It did not appear anyone was injured. 

The awning was attached to a vacant building between Second Chances and Horizon Chiropractic. It once housed Brickhouse Music.
