Tragedy on the Mississippi River

US emergency teams are searching for bodies a day after a bridge over the Mississippi river collapsed, killing a number of people.

At least four people are confirmed dead with up to 30 missing. US officials are not linking the collapse to terrorism.

Some 50 vehicles were hurled into the water when part of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, gave way during the rush hour on Wednesday evening.

Prayers needed.

    Also, I must say, I don't often comment; but, I am a regular reader of Rome of the West.
