Snow Buries Dinosaurs At Long Island Museum

CENTERPORT, NY (WCBS 880) – The weight of heavy snow and ice collapsed the roof of the Vanderbilt Museum‘s dinosaur exhibit in Centerport, Long Island.

WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports

Museum director Carol Hart says, “Some of the dinosaurs that had been once standing tall are now buried.”

Some of those replica creatures – about a dozen of them – stand some 18-feet-tall.

“The structure itself is a total loss, so the future of the dinosaurs at the Vanderbilt is a little uncertain,” says Hart.

The exhibit was a favorite among children. They hope to be able to salvage some of the dinosaurs.
