TULSA, Oklahoma -- Another roof collapsed in the Tulsa area in the wake of a massive winter storm.

The Restore Hope Ministry food bank at 2960 Charles Page Boulevard suffered a partial roof collapse Monday.

The director of the food bank, Larry Johnson, said the roof caved in over several freezer units where meat products are stored.

The food bank was to open Monday for the first time since last week's storm closed the organization for days.

"We had staff and volunteers here, parking lot cleared. We were all ready to go, and we found this," Johnson said.

Johnson said they didn't lose any food during the collapse, but may have to throw some away during the repair of the building.

They plan on reopening Tuesday.
