THACKERSVILLE, Okla. — At least 14 individuals have been injured and transported to hospitals after trusses holding up the doorway to a resort the place the Backstreet Boys have been set to start a live performance in Oklahoma collapsed.
WinStar World Casino and Resort says in an announcement posted on Twitter Saturday that the resort started an evacuation at about 5 p.m. when lightning was inside 4 miles of the on line casino.
The firm says about 150 patrons didn’t evacuate and when the storm hit with 113-128 kph winds, it knocked over trusses and the doorway collapsed on them. Of the 14 individuals taken to a hospital, two have been launched.
WinStar later stated the live performance was postponed to a later date. Band member Kevin Richardson tweeted that the live performance had been offered out with about 12,000 followers.
