FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Snow removal crews at the Amazon facility in north Fargo needed more than just snowblowers and shovels to take care of their snow removal; bigger equipment is required for the job.

A crane was brought in to lift loads of snow off the roof of the massive 1.1 million-square-foot facility. Flat roofs like this one are more prone to structural damage or collapsing under the weight of heavy snow.

An Amazon representative says Wednesday’s roof snow removal was “routine” as they’ve gone through the process several times this winter. Crew hauled down a little more than 350,000 pounds of snow on March 22 alone.
