Two people have been killed and 15 injured when a circus tent collapsed in a storm during a performance at a New Hampshire fairground, according to officials, The Guardian reported.
Authorities said 250 people were inside the tent at the Lancaster fairgrounds, about 90 miles north of the state capital in Concord, when it fell down during a fierce storm.
The US National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the area around the time of the collapse.
State fire marshal Bill Degnan said there were serious injuries, while state police said they were assessing the number of casualties.
A Lancaster police dispatcher said the big top collapsed during a show. Governor Maggie Hassan said state officials were monitoring the situation.
