PRYOR, Oklahoma - Two side stages collapse at Rocklahoma 2008 when a severe summer storm blasted the area. The Tulsa World reports one person sustained a broken arm.
The severe storm sent thousands of people to tents for cover, most seeking refuge in the "VIP" tent. Despite the storm, only concert attendees with wristbands were allowed into the VIP tent, perhaps the most sturdy structure at Rocklahoma. Strong wind gusts whipped through the area, peeling apart tent flaps, allowing rushing water into the area.
The Tri-Label and Retrospect Records stages both completely collapsed. Damage estimates are unknown.
Thousands of attendees trampled through standing water, uncertain of the evening's outcome.
Update: concert has resumed as of 8:44 C.S.T.
