Record snowfall blankets Anchorage after storm

A recent three-day storm in Anchorage, Alaska put the city above 100in (245cm) of snowfall this winter season, the earliest accumulation ever of that amount in the city’s history.

The roofs of at least three commercial buildings collapsed under the weight of the snow, which officials say is more than 30lbs per square foot (146 kg per square meter).
