Tonight, the 35W 8 lane bridge collapsed in downtown Mpls, MN over the Mississippi River. This hits too close, as we often use this bridge, and my parents were on this bridge twice earlier today!!!
We are watching the news reports, and are so happy to see and hear survivors, and hope that many more are found! It is a terrible tragedy, but in true Minnesota fashion many of the people involved immediately stepped up to help those around them! True HEROS!!!
We understand the Red Cross will be setting up a website for people to use, with the sole purpose of connecting up with loved ones involved. The cell phone services are overloaded, and many people are unable to get in touch with each other.
Best wishes to those injured for a speedy recovery.
