CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) - Currituck County dispatchers reported that a gain silo in Currituck County collapsed around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
A public information officer in North Carolina told WAVY.com that there were no injures.
The collapse caused a gas leak, but the Piedmont gas company secured the leak.
The grain from the silo spilled onto nearby railroad tracks, which were closed until crews could clean the mess.
Responders waited for a building inspector to evaluate the silo and make sure it was structurally sound. Until the "okay" was given, the other two silos were off-limits.
Chopper 10 flew to the scene and captured live images of the spill.
The silo was part of Currituck Grain Inc. on Caratoke Highway -- a long-time farmer owned business. The local feed store, feed mill and grain elevator is owned and run by Frank T. Williams Sr.
