That's it. It's in the same region from where my mother's family came, Upper Bavaria, not far away.

The Post-Gazette confirmed that no one was injured at Rostraver Garden:

Quote:
The thunderous sound of cracking pillars halted a youth hockey tournament at the Rostraver Ice Garden Sunday, sending dozens of children running from the building shortly before the roof collapsed.

No one was injured and everyone who had been inside the building was accounted for, said Justin Shawley, assistant chief of the Rostraver Central Volunteer Fire Company.[...]

well, lets hope it has enough structural integrity to last at least 4 more months

It was a second home to me. I played all my high school home games there, and went to public skate every weekend. It's pretty disappointing. Glad to see everyone is alright too.
