Nearly two weeks after it exploded, the Andersen Farms grain elevator, South Sioux City, NE, came toppling down, reports the Linoln Journal Star.

Using extra equipment following a number of unsuccessful demolition attempts over the weekend, Terminal Solutions of Radcliffe, IA, dismantled the top of the structure shortly after 6 p.m. Monday.

The successful demolition meant approximately two dozen families who had been displaced for two weeks were given permission to return home.

An explosion that blew a large hole in the grain elevator's side May 29 is still under investigation. One employee was hospitalized with severe burns.
