UNI-Dome fell in snowstorm 15 years ago

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The UNI-Dome deflated for the third and final time due to weather on December 9, 1994.  Accumulation of water from melting snow and ice on the canvas roof caused the material to tear along a seam.

Strong winds then ripped a triangular hole, causing the dome to deflate.  The roof was reinflated ten days later after a replacement panel was installed.
