    Bridge Collapse in Minneapolis, MN

    A freeway bridge has collapsed and multiple vehicles have gone into the river.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070801/...ridge_collapse

    My prayers and thoughts go out to those people affected.

    I can't even begin to imagine what those affected are going through. I'm watching footage on cnn.com. I feel horrible for all involved. I grew up in Minneapolis and went across that bridge all the time. Just tragic.

    BPF is ok. I just got a text from her saying she is fine. First thing I thought of when I saw the location too.

    Glad to hear she is OK. I also hate bridges and my fear is that when I am on one it will collapse.

    News here is reporting that there was construction going on that bridge and that it may have only had a few lanes open of an 8 lane bridge.

    I saw it on the news about 30 minutes ago. I have family up there and the phone lines are jammed an can't get through to them. I am glad to hear that Briana is okay. My prayers go out to Minneapolis right now.

    Yeah it's only on the surface, not the steel holding it up. So weird and so sad.

    Thank goodness the school bus stopped in time.

    But I have to think we will have fatalities, though I hope not

    Re: Bridge Collapse in Minneapolis, MN

    Jeez, I've been on that bridge many times.

    Actually saw the bridge this weekend (wasn't on it though.)

    A friend of mine was in the Twin Cities this weekend and went over that bridge and actually said she had a weird feeling about going over it.

    I was just in Target and the vibe is just weird around town. It reminds me back when 9/11 happened. Everyone is just quiet.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    At least 50 dead and 60 wounded...so far, according to local news here.
