Now, even if you don't live near Minneapolis something like this may have happened to you...
MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - Three people were confirmed dead in the collapse of a freeway bridge in Minneapolis, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security in Washington said there was no indication of terrorism in the disaster.
"There is no indication of a nexus to terrorism at this time," department spokesman Russ Knocke said.
At 6:15 PM in the heart of rush hour on the bridge, things were going slow, there was a large crack under the bridge for about a year, suddenly, a rumbling ensued and the hundreds of people in their cars on the bridge began to see smoke rise, one man dived out of his car. The bridge buckled and collapsed as it fell into the Mighty Mississippi river, many drowning, some with only slight injuries but standing on a giant slate of bridge in the middle of the water, one piece of the bridge fell on a road under it, cars were smashed onto each other, compressed so much it would look like just one deformed car. Twisted steel was everywhere and people buried under rubble, one school bus full of kids 4-12 years old barely pulled to a stop, barely escaping from flying off the bridge into the Mighty Mississippi rivers depths, children were extremely traumatized and many people had to go to the Hennepin County Hospital for not only injuries but for consolation.
Wow, this is extremely bad, my mom was frantic calling people, this wasn't even from an Earthquake... sure looked it though... if you live in Minnesota or have friends/family in Minnesota/Wisconsin I'd recommend calling them =(. Anyone have this happen near them?
