Recent snow and ice storms have damaged a local sports facility and left teams at St. Ambrose University in Davenport looking for a temporary place to practice.

The Director of Athletics tells us during a storm last month, with ice and wet snow, snow collapsed on one side of the dome on Brady Street.

"Which then put pressure, dropped pressure in the dome, which got the side of the dome punctured in which created a couple holes, blew out a couple doors and have a couple seams that have come apart within our structure," said Tony Huntley, Director of Athletic Facilities.

Crews have come in to evaluate the situation, and the company has already completed some patches, but it could take another two to three weeks to finish repairs.
     
Until that time, athletes will be using other facilities in the area to practice including on the SAU campus itself.
