UPDATE: Roof Collapse Injures People in Anaheim

More than a dozen people were injured this morning in Anaheim as a roof collapsed at an adult educational center. The Southern California region is currently under a flood watch as heavy rains and mountain snows are impacting the area.

At least 13 people were injured, and all were transported to area hospitals.

According to authorities on the scene, the North Orange County Regional Occupational Program was holding a medical back-office training class at its Career and Technical Institute located at 1617 East Ball Road when the roof collapsed shortly before 9:30 a.m..

Anaheim Fire Department officials reported that a drain situated above one of the classrooms in the educational center failed. Water then gathered on the roof, causing it to collapse.
