The City of Somerville positioned police cruisers blocking off the intersection at Pearl and Medford Streets with the fear that the Homans Building will Collapse with the heavey snowload on its roof from recent storms.

According to reports, visible structural damage cracks have recently appeared since the heavy snow has been on the building’s roof.

With more snow and rain in the forecast, the city is taking no chances.

The Homans Building is a city owned building that has been vacant for close to ten years.
