The facade of a building near 33rd and Troost Street in Kansas City collapsed on August 2, 2016, the latest in a series of building collapses in Kansas linked to extreme weather throughout the state during the summer of 2016.[1]

Local resident Lori Buntin captured the moment the facade sheered off when she heard a loud crack and trained her cell phone on the building. "To me, it sounded a lot like when a tree cracks but it was much more continuous and then it was a thunderous sound when all the bricks hit the ground", she explained.[2]

The building was empty at the time, having already been scheduled for demolition, and no one was injured.
