The weather inside was frightful at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis Sunday, as a heavy blizzard in the Midwest led to the structure’s roof caving in and ripping open, allowing more than 20 inches of snow to hit the surface.

The incident was all caught on tape, and is scorching online as one of the most-searched viral videos of the day.
The damage to the structure caused the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings to push their Sunday game against the New York Giants to Detroit’s Ford Field on Monday, as the Metrodome is not expected to be back in working order until Wednesday.
It’s the first time in almost 30 years the structure’s had serious problems when heavy snow meets the inflatable roof: an April 1983 baseball game pitting the then-home team Twins against the California Angels was postponed after a similar malfunction.
The Vikings next play at home December 20 against the Chicago Bears.
