Fairway Lincoln Mazda is clearing up after the front façade of their showroom collapsed during Friday's storm.

The façade collapsed around 2:30 p.m. at the dealership located on the Abercorn Extension. Store managers said no one was hurt even though there were people inside the building at the time of the collapse.

"Just a sheer volume of water," explained General Sales Manager Osha Berry. "We had three feet of water standing along the roadways and in the back parking lot, and it came down. It was like a little earthquake. It was amazing, it was just incredibly loud."

Managers at the dealership are looking at the damage as a good thing. They already had renovation plans in the works, and now they hope to move up those plans to build a new showroom.
