Heavy snow caused the collapse of two boat-storage buildings at a Pennsylvania marina last week, damaging just three of many vessels housed there.

Bob Hennessy, owner of Wolf Run Marina in Clarendon and the buildings that collapsed, told the Olean (N.Y.) Times Herald that he was shocked to find one of the buildings caved in from snow load on March 7 and couldn’t believe it when the second building collapsed five days later.

“There were actually three boats total that were damaged, but two pretty extensively,” Hennessy told the Times Herald. “One of the houseboats, one boat that is totaled and obviously the owner isn’t happy, but hopefully the insurance will take care of things.”

Hennessy said the third damaged boat is his own houseboat and he said it also might be totaled.

“Between the buildings and the boats, I think we’re going to be upwards of a couple hundred thousand dollars in damage,” Hennessy said. “My boat is well over $100,000 by itself, and then the buildings and the second boat that was totaled. … It’s a lot.”
