OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say no one was injured when a privately-owned parking garage in midtown Omaha collapsed overnight.

Omaha news outlets say the garage had been declared unsafe and condemned only hours before it collapsed around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

While no one was injured, some vehicles near the collapse, a boat and items stored in the garage were damaged.

Omaha television station KETV says some people in the area also reported losing power after the collapse. Investigators say part of a garage wall fell on nearby power lines.

Police tell Omaha television station WOWT that a city inspector will inspect the site Tuesday to evaluate the damage.
