Danielle Remington was in her kitchen Saturday night when she heard a loud noise coming from her condominium parking lot. “Honestly, it sounded like a freight train derailed,” said Remington, who lives at Edgewater Village Condominiums on 2121 E. Upriver Drive. What she heard was the sound of a carport crashing down on parked cars. The collapse, which happened at around 9 p.m. Saturday, was likely the cause of snow accumulation on the carport’s roof, said residents. Snow-related roof collapse or structures falling is nothing new to the Spokane area, especially during harsher winters.
