Wind rips apart Burbank domed studio under construction linked to Vegas project

BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- Thursday's powerful winds tore apart a Burbank studio under construction, sending debris littering throughout the streets.

The project off Hollywood Way near the Hollywood Burbank Airport is a dome-shaped studio being built for Madison Square Garden Entertainment.

The studio was to be used to produce content for the new MSG Sphere, a spherical 17,500-seat venue set to open in Las Vegas in 2023.

The strong winds stripped the dome down to its metal frame, sending debris tumbling through the streets nearby.
