Chopper 7 video appears to show heavy damage to Silverdome roof

PONITAC, Mich. (WXYZ) - Chopper 7 was over the Pontiac Silverdome, where video appears to show extensive damage to the roof of the facility.

Earlier this month the huge inflatable roof was deflated as part of what officials said was a renovation plan.

However, today's video appears to show that some of the roof panels were shredded and in tatters.

We contacted Silverdome officials for comment. They say since they let the air out the roof has been tearing because of the wind and snow. They also say they expected tearing to happen.
