ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Construction crews set off explosive charges on Sunday (February 2) to sever the cables of the Metrodome's roof in Minneapolis.
The explosions were part of a gradual demolition of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Twins from 1982 through 2008 and the Minnesota Vikings from 1982 through 2013.
Last month, the stadium's famous white roof was deflated for the last time, while the support cables continued to secure it.
Streets were closed as well as area businesses and the light rail station as the controlled explosions took place, local media reported.
The Metrodome will be replaced with a new one billion dollar stadium for the Vikings.
