Parking deck goodness

A section of a car park has reportedly collapsed near the centre of Atlanta city in the US state of Georgia.

TV footage showed that part of at least one floor had fallen onto the level below, crushing cars.

Witnesses told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper that four floors of the deck had collapsed, but that the overall structure remained.

It is not known if anyone was hurt. The car park is near the campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Let's hope everyone's OK. Let's also hope that Durham has fixed its own parking deck problems.



  • Yikes. I'm pretty sure that deck is less than ten years old, too (since I don't remember it being there when I went to GA Tech.)

  • do you love the irony that we hear about this via the BBC?
