    My heart goes out to everyone there.

    I was there just a few weeks ago, drove over the bridge myself.

    Now they are saying 3 are dead. There was a school bus with kids involved but they are all believed ok.

    We had a bridge collapse back in 1980 here in my area of FL, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. To this day for many of the people who lived here at the time of the accident still feel uneasy going over the new bridge in a bad storm. 36 people died in that accident, so sad. Here's a link to an article about it if anyone is interested in reading about it. http://www.francesfarmersrevenge.com...ges/skyway.htm

    WOW...crazy...I was at work when this happened and around 6:30 EVERYONE was on their cell phones. Heard sirens constantly and finally got word what had happened.

    I was on that bridge just yesterday. This is crazy. :cry:

    I never expected that to happen here. I know many that used that bridge everyday. It hit closer to home than I can say. Tragic.

    Has anyone else been keeping tabs on this?

    Death count is 4 right now, but they said there's between 20-30 people unaccounted for...horrible. If you go here http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20079923...mode/1107/s/2/ you can see some of the pictures from the crash....unbelievable.

    I've been watching it. There are some amazing stories about how people's cars fell and were totally wrecked, yet they were able to walk away. A lot of stories about people getting together and pulling others from cars before the first responders arrived.

    I read about that Emmc, people jumping into the water to pull others out. Gives me goosebumps!!!!

    I cannot imagine how terrified the people on the bridge must have been...hope I never know either.

    What is eerie is looking at the pictures from last night's collapse and then looking at the pictures of the Skyway collapse here in 1980 http://www.francesfarmersrevenge.com...ges/skyway.htm looks very similar...crazy.

    Re: Bridge Collapse in MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota

    That bridge is a HUGE part of Minnesota's commute. Some 200,000 cars a day. I was in downtown Minneapolis yesterday when all of the sirens started. I was like WTF! I went there, right around 6:30-6:45ish, and WOW! The pictures don't even do it justice. That was a huge bridge, my hope, thoughts, and prayers go out to the missing. There will be a lot more dead, they're saying cars are pinned underneath...
