Page 12 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 By Allison Olimb of The Press HOOPLE, N.D. -- On Tuesday, Sept. 12, two 30,000 bushel bins gave way at H0ople Farmers Grain Co. in Hoople, N.D. Elevator Manager Guy Phelps said that they had about an hour notice before the first bin collapsed as it started to groan and spit bolts. The bin had been full for two weeks. He said that they tried taking grain out to relieve the pres- sure, but the damage already had been done. The bin went down not long after. Phelps said that it was structural failure. "I don't have any reason why it would have broke," he said adding the bin was equipped with stiff- eners. An overhead con- veyer connected the bin to another. As the first bin went down, it took the second, which was also full, with it. A couple of legs were damaged and possibly, he said, their grain dryer. Workers from For- est River Colony were on site last week to assist in clean uE prior to the weekend; rains.
