Not to belittle those who have died in the collapse, but wow I can't believe that only 4 are confirmed right now.
that's just krazy.
I know all my family up in MN are ok, hopefully they find those missing persons and they are alive. Thank God the school bus had no casualties.

Damn that sucks, last I read there were at least 79 injured and 20-30 people missing. I hope everyone ends up being okay.

the bridge was about 1 mile from my apartment.

they are only going with 4 dead right now but basically there's 2 huge slabs of concrete in the water with like 8-10 cars each trapped underneath. guessing that's the 20-30 missing people.

i guess in some ways it's lucky that only 4 of the 8 possible lanes were open and that traffic was moving like 2mph.
