  • Description
  • On February 2, 1916, the dome of St. James Cathedral collapsed under the weight of 15 tons of wet snow. Three feet of snow had accumulated in Seattle over two days, and warming temperatures made the snow even heavier, causing the collapse. Services did not resume in the cathedral for more than a year after the storm.
