Frisco grain silo collapses during Tuesday storms

Tuesday morning’s storms damaged the gray metal silos along Main Street beyond repair, collapsing one and bending another. "Both silos will need to come down; neither are structurally sound,” said Tom Johnston, city director of administrative services. Crews have temporarily secured the area with 6-foot fencing. “In the meantime, staff is researching demolition and feasibility of reclaiming any materials for use in future construction projects,” he said. The grain storage buildings, which likely date to the late 1940s or early 1950s, are located on 2.6 acres of city-owned property. The city had other scattered reports of storm damage, including fence panels knocked down, shingles coming off roofs and downed power lines on Rockhill Road.
