UNI-Dome deflated second time in 1977

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The UNI-Dome deflated for the second time in history June 30, 1977.  It first deflated a year earlier just before opening.

The canvas roof came down during high winds, rain and a power outage.  That caused the dome to deflate and tear.

The Dome deflated again in the '90s before being replaced by a steel roof.
