Highway 35W collapsed during rush hour.
I'm sure you can google news articles about this, if not now, soon enough. I have nothing to link right now... anyway.
A bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis/Saint Paul collapsed. It was under construction and they were pouring cement around 6:15 when the bridge gave way. There's many people unaccounted for, including construction workers, who may have gone int the river, as well as stretches that collapsed onto other roads below on the banks of the river.
I live in the Twin Cities here in Minnesota, and honestly, were it not for the Simpsons, I would probably have been on this stretch of highway. I got up to head over to my pastor's house for our Wednesday night small group type thing, and I usually head out early, but for some weird reason I sat back down because I hadn't seen the upcoming episode of the Simpsons...
Anyway, please pray for the people who were involved or affected by this accident. It's crazy here right now.
I've driven that bridge many times, have a lot of family in the area.
Amazing video footage of actual collapse here.
Unbelievable. It just all went straight down.
