A severe storm led to a stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair on Saturday, killing at least five people and injuring about 40 people. The accident occurred as crowds were awaiting a performance by the country band Sugarland in Indianapolis.

Very sad. Similar event to the one at Bluesfest in Ottawa. Announcer said that a storm was approching and that people should back off from the stage and be cautious. Alot of them left but alot also chose to stay close within the VIP section. Winds recorded were up to 125 kms/h.

My thoughts and prayers go to the families of the injured and deceased.
