A shocking video shows the dramatic moment a hotel in Scotland collapses into raging flood waters in the wake of Storm Ciara.
According to the Daily Mail, fire crews rushed to The Bridge Guest House in Hawick, Scotland, after a large section of the building collapsed after raging flood waters compromised the structure's integrity.

The building's foundations were reportedly already partially washed away, and an eyewitness, who was due to stay at the hotel, claimed that is reservation was cancelled because of fears of imminent collapse.
Police Scotland have reported that the hotel was evacuated and no deaths or injuries were reported form the scene.
Storm Ciara is reportedly Britain's biggest storm in seven years, and gales of up to 93mph have wreaked havoc in affected areas.
