The Morton Salt shed on Elston Avenue just can't even handle it anymore. The long building which contains (you guessed it) a tremendous amount of salt has literally bursted at the seams and spilled a huge pile of salt on some nearby cars that belong to the McGrath Acura dealership next door. According to multiple sources, there are no reports of injuries, however the facility which Morton's iconic umbrella girl adorns will certainly need some repairs.
