November 29, 2012

Hawaii will conduct roof inspections at state facilities following a collapse at a high school auditorium.

The Farrington High School auditorium roof collapsed on Friday amid heavy rains. Officials say there had been no reports of major problems. No one was hurt.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says the state now has decided to conduct inspections of roofs at schools, designated disaster shelters and other state facilities.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie told reporters Monday that the state will expedite inspections of roofs that are aging, due for replacement or in need of repairs.
