Newly released police video shows a massive roof collapse.
Aerial footage released Saturday by the Eerie County Sheriff's Office of a massive roof collapse underscores how badly the barrage of snow has impacted area towns.
The video, released on the sheriff's Facebook page, was shot on Friday, according to the footage's timestamp. It shows a large manufacturing area, according to sheriff's officials who appear to be surveying the damage from above as they remark on its severity.
"They weren't lying. Pretty significant," one official says as another responds with a "Wow."
The Sheriff's Office has not released the name of the business nor its location due to safety reasons.
However, the building in the video appears to be the same one Eerie County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted about on Thursday.

More than 30 other roofs have collapsed amid the snowstorms that brought roughly 88 inches of snow to parts of the region in western New York. Now, area residents and officials are bracing for possible flooding.
