The Cloakroom at 476K Street NW has sustained damaged in a building collapse. At first, the damage was limited to the inside of the buildings, but shortly after 4PM, the third floor of the club collapsed into the second floor. This News 4 NBC Washington article has a slide show that includes a brief video of the moment the 3rd floor crumbled down. The video is also on facebook.
“[We were] just dancing, doing our routine… and the wall collapsed in on the kitchen and the bathroom…. Some of the girls were shaken up,” Olivia, a dancer at The Cloakroom, told News4.
The Cloakroom’s facebook page has a status that states: “Everyone is safe. Thanks for the concerns.”
Two blocks down the street, the facade of a historic building at the AAMC construction site experienced a collapse on April 22nd.
