The Canopy over the Valero Gas Pumps in Spruce Pine Collapsed from the weight of the heavy snow yesterday. A vehicle under the canopy was damaged from the collapse but no injuries reported.
Power companies all around Western North Carolina were spared heavy damage as the snow storm brought a dryer more powder like snow instead of the expected heavy wet snow. Just a few scattered power outages have been reported during the storm.
Schools all around the region remain closed again today.
