MOORHEAD (KFGO-AM) -- A sagging basketball hoop was the first sign of possible trouble with the roof at Memorial Auditorium at Concordia College in Moorhead.
Structural engineers will visit the campus next month to make an assessment. Concordia administrators stress that the building is safe. Their main concern with what may happen should there be heavy snow build-up.
Unless there's heavy snow, most events at Memorial Auditorium will go on as scheduled, with the exception of the annual christmas concert set for Dec. 13, 14 and 15.That's been moved to the Fargo Civic Center.
The building will be closed the week of Nov. 18 while the structural assessment is underway. Memorial Auditorium opened in 1952. The roof was replaced in 2007.
