Rush to Clean Collapsed Building
"Well the ice, I guess, too much for it and in some places we measured the ice here and it was like four inches on it," said Rhoton.
Now, it's all about clean-up. Family, friends and neighbors are all cranking up the chainsaw and tearing down the remnants of what houses Rhoton's roof manufacturing business.
"We are pretty much disassembling the building that collapsed, cleaning up, getting all the debris cleaned up to where we can get the majority of the equipment that's covered back underneath shelter," said Rhoton's son-in-law Richie Holmes.
Rhoton's building which once was a wood structure will soon become a much sturdier steel structure.
"You wouldn't believe how many people that's called and wanted to know if they can help and you know you don't know how many friends you have until you have something like this happen," said Rhoton.
For now, though, Rhoton is still in disbelief this all happened. He just hopes damage like this doesn't happen again, especially with the heavy snow that started to hit mid-Missouri Saturday night.
