    Default*UPDATED 08.03 PICS* MINNEAPOLIS 35W BRIDGE COLAPSED! VERY SAD! **PLEASE READ**

    Updated 08.03

    I recieved these in an email today.. These are photos taken by a man at the scene... Some are close ups and are intense.... They really show the devastation.. This happened maybe 10 minutes from my house and I still haevnt had the stomach to go view it myself.. I plan on going either Sunday or early next week.. Ill update photos when I go... there are only 5 confirmed dead yet.. at least 8 still missing and possibly 30-50 cars still under water and debris...

    I know I should put this in odds and ends but this is way to close to home and I knew Id get more traffic here... I know that the collapse of the 35W bridge in Mpls made the national news.. It happened about 6:05pm CDT ... confirmied 7 dead and dozens injured at least 50 cars in the mississippi river so far.. I live 4 blocks from 35W about 15 minutes north of the bridge that collapsed.. I am happy to say that neither myself or anyone close to me that I know of so far was involved in the catasrophe.. I want to hear from all of my MN JL friends to let us know that you guys and your loved ones are also OK and to ask for everyones prayers for the victims, survivors, all of the families and the communities involved...

    Here is a link to one of our local news stations for coverage and the story...

    I left the offic early today and crossed the bridge at 4, rather than my normal 6. Smart move. Wanted to take HK for a walk before the thunderstorms arrived that never did. HK may have saved me.

    Was wondering if this was important enough to pin it to the top so everyone can check in on the thread.

    Prayers are heading MN way!

    The numbers so far are that 9 died, but 20 are missing. I feel for the families of the missing more right now. I can't imagine the hope that they could be found surviving with enough air in their car. Not likely, but so hard to give up on.

    The center of action right now is to recover those that are missing, then the investigation into cause, blame, and 1-2 years of traffic mania around here. I am sure we have a couple more bridges of similar construction in the area, lots of river crossing, and they will all undergo critical inspections.

    Yes! I can see HK in your Dakota also. But Dakota has the wrong color collar on.<g>

    LOL..actually..the collar is navy and a coppery color..it looks pinkish in the pic tho. We thought the navy/coppery color would go good with Dakota's coat, if he ever decides what color he wants to be..he's running chocolate to dark chocolate..I have a two toned Lab..LOL, with reddish hi lights on his head and ears. Make up my mind..will ya..LOL Jackie
