The constant and heavy snowfall across the Treasure Valley isn't wreaking havoc on just the roads, but also buildings.

The weight of several inches of snow caused some carports in Boise to collapse. One in a neighborhood off Vista Ave. and one off Warm Springs Ave.

Nobody was injured, but fire departments want to warn the public about the risks associated with heavy snow and flat rooftops.
