A father and daughter were killed Monday after a circus tent collapsed amid stormy weather in Lancaster, New Hampshire, state fire marshal Bill Degnan said Tuesday. In addition to those who died, 34 people were injured -- some seriously.
The identity of the two deceased victims are being withheld pending family notification, Degnan said.
At least 100 people were under the tent just before 6 p.m. when a severe storm moved through the area, the Union Leader reported.
A severe thunderstorm warning was in effect for the area at the time. One meteorologist estimated the winds would have reached 60 mph at the time of the collapse.
