No one was performing at the time of the collapse.The opening act had finished, and the crowd was waiting for Sugarland to take the stage. At the same time, the weather was worsening; there had been heavy rain and winds were picking up. State police were monitoring radar weather reports on their smartphones.
They had just decided to evacuate the grandstands and were putting officials in place to carry out the plan. But it wasn’t fast enough. Unfortunately 5 people are dead and 45 still injured.
