Crosbyton Church Collapse

CROSBYTON, Texas (KJTV) - Church officials with the First Baptist Church of Crosbyton says the recent heavy rainfall caused the Fellowship Center at the church to collapse on Monday.

It happened at Noon during the heavy rain.

Officials say no one was in the building at the time of the collapse, so there were no injuries.

The Fellowship Center is connected by a hallway to the sanctuary, but initial reports say the sanctuary was not damaged.

Officials say the Sunday service will still happen, but it will be moved to a different area of the church, further away from the damaged part of the building.
