Bridge collapses in Minneapolis

You may have already heard that the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota collapsed tonight. So far it appears that 6 people have died and 38 more are injured. You might ask yourself why I’m writing about this on the Philadelphia metblog, but my answer is that the world is a small place. We all have people who are scattered far and wide, and if you’ve got loved ones in that area of the country and were looking for news of the tragedy, I just wanted to let you know that Metroblogging Twin Cities is doing their best to cover the event. They’ve got personal stories, photos, links and video ready to go.

    when i saw this last night all i could think was: south street bridge. they interviewed a guy on msnbc who claimed the structural integrity of most of the bridges in the northeast us is questionable.
