Bennett Indoor Complex Roof In Toms River Collapses
High winds tear what is known as "The Bubble" on Hooper Avenue
A power outage coupled with high winds has torn the roof of the Bennett Indoor Complex on Hooper Avenue, officials say.
The complex is known as "The Bubble" and is the home of numerous sports activities next to Toms River Intermediate East.
Toms River Regional Schools spokesperson Tammi Millar said the "bubble" has collapsed.
"It's in the down position," she said.
First came a power outage around 4 p.m., then high winds compromised the structure, she said, leading to its collapse.
"It appears it ripped around the scoreboard as it came down," she said. "There is a gash."
Millar said the reports are preliminary. No injuries were reported.
The facility was closed at the time. "There is a split in the bubble and it collapsed around it." she said.
