LECFALL1 OC…..ACTUALLY HAPPENED. :24

WIECK SAYS NO WORKERS WERE IN THE VICINITY WHEN THE WALLS CAME DOWN:

WIECK DOESN’T HAVE A COMPLETED DAMAGE ESTIMATE YET BECAUSE THE INVESTIGATION IS STILL CONTINUING, AND IS HOPEFUL IT WILL BE COVERED BY INSURANCE:

HE SAYS UNFORTUNATELY THE WALLS THAT TOPPLED WILL HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY REPLACED:
