Another Minnesota person here...
I don't think she meant anything offendsive, but was just surprised that the bridge collapse became national news so quickly.
I'm still kind of confused about exactly which bridge has collapased. There's a bridge that we always cross when we come into Minneapolis from the south, and it's the same type of bridge, so I'm not sure if this is the one that has collapased or not. But I have to say that I never ever thought while crossing that bridge that it might fall... but now I will.
Scamper Farms: I'm so glad you weren't on the bridge when it fell, and I'm also glad that those here who were concerned about loved ones were able to get good news.
UPDATE: This morning there are 5 people confirmed dead and this death toll will rise. From what I understand, there are as many as 30 bodies still in the water because the divers haven't been able to reach them due to dangerous conditions.
Please keep those families who are still waiting for news in your thoughts and prayers.
