Bridge Collapse - We're OK
There was a bridge collapse in the Twin Cities today, just north of Minneapolis. Fortunately, I don't take that bridge when I got to work, so we're OK, but holy shit. Here's a satellite map of the area. This is the main I35W bridge (the one on the left in the map). This will definitely cause major traffic problems for the Twin Cities. And yes, there are people dead because of the collapse, very, very sad. A former co-worker at a client I was at a year ago took some amazing pictures - check 'em out, especially this one and this one. Wow.
There's a video of the collapse as it happened on CNN - here's the link. The vid is surreal to watch.
