Brandon McBride, an employee who was working in the building at the time, described the chaos when the building collapsed.
‘I was standing inside the building and me and one of the facilities dudes were talking, and I went to the left side of the building and he went to the right, and all of a sudden, we just heard these loud noises. The power shut off. It was just crazy inside,’ McBride said. ‘It just sounded like bombs were dropping everywhere. The whole side (of the building) was just dropping.’
Severe weather came through the area Friday night at the time of the partial collapse, Clark said. But fire officials have not determined a cause.
‘There was stuff falling everywhere, you could see the walls were caving in,’ McBride said. ‘Rain was pouring everywhere; all the packages were soaked. It’s unreal.’
