It seems like a lot of slip sliding is happening here in the US.  It will be up to the local people to report bridge collapses because I don't think we'll even hear about these unless it's in our own backyard. 

Recall too that President Obama deliberately brought up the Minnesota bridge collapse, and the Zetas (and only the Zetas!) told us why.

Here's the newest infrastructure collapse with a life lost in the LIRR tunnel collapse that happened last night.  Things are really picking up.

Sandhogs work in the LIRR tunnels beneath Grand Central Terminal in January.

A young sandhog was killed Thursday night in the collapse of a railroad tunnel deep under Park Ave., despite his father’s heroic efforts to save him, a source told The Daily News.

The unidentified victim was working on an LIRR tunnel when a portion caved around 7:30 p.m., according to the source, an LIRR employee who spoke on the condition he would not be named.

The young worker’s father, who was working alongside him, frantically tried to revive his son with CPR as workers rushed him through a network of tunnels to a waiting ambulance at E. 48th St. and Park Ave., the source said.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died, according to the source.

The FDNY could not confirm the collapse and LIRR officials could not be reached immediately for comment.The East Side Access project will connect the LIRR's Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal.

Sandhogs are excavating tunnels about 120 feet beneath Manhattan streets. Work is expected to be completed early next year.

1 in 9 highway bridges in the U.S. are classified as "structurally deficient," requiring significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement.  http://t4america.org/

What made Obama chose the 2007 collapse of the Minneapolis bridge on I-35 as his example of infrastructure needing to be repaired? This was of course a dramatic incident, with the bridge flinging to one side and folding in waves against that side. Clearly there was tension, the Mississippi pulling apart at that point. This is also an incident that got a lot of attention on the Internet for a ZetaTalk prediction come true. We had predicted Mississippi bridges ripping during the New Madrid, and this was the first example of this prediction culminating. Curious minds, entering the date and place into search engines, would arrive at the ZetaTalk predictions. Is this Obama's way of leaking the truth? Yes, and just the start of such maneuvers.

Today I posted that a bridge on I-80 at the Tannersville exit in the Poconos collapsed.  This is an area that has been pulling apart with many gas explosions just recently.

Back in Feb.2011, Parts of Ludford Bridge in Ludlow have fallen in to the River Teme.  As we will be starting to see bridges collapse I thought it best to start a blog with this heading.  I'm sure I will be adding to this as time evolves.  

I've added the proper ZT message regarding the safety of our bridges.  Not only in the US, but worldwide, with severe twisting , crunching, and shaking that the earth is now subjected to on a daily basis  due to a daily worldwide wobble and caused by the ever approaching Planet X, we'll see more bridges crumble and fall.

Zambia: Bridge Collapse Cuts Off Matanda Chiefdom

8 February 2016

Mansa — About 20,000 people in Chief Matanda's area in Mansa District have been cut off from the rest of the area after Mupanda and Lweba bridges collapsed following heavy rains.

The two bridges collapsed over the weekend leaving people completely cut off following heavy rains that pounded the district recently.

Mr Lewis Kapembwa who spoke on behalf of the residents said they had been cut off from the rest of the district making it difficult to access some services.

Mr Kapembwa said residents were unable to cross over to the clinic on the other side and motor vehicles had also stopped moving.

He called on Government to address the situation by constructing a new bridge to help the local people cross over to other areas.

"Our two bridges have collapsed leaving us cut-off from the rest of the district and we have no access to services such as health," Mr Kapembwa said.

Area Member of Parliament Chitalu Chilufya who is also deputy minister of Health visited the two sites and was saddened by the development and assured residents that the bridges would be reconstructed.

500 residents stranded after bridge collapses

JOHOR BARU, Feb 8, 2016:

A 50-metre bridge across Sungai Kopok which is the main access bridge for residents in Kampung Perigi Acheh, near Pasir Gudang, collapsed early this morning, leaving about 500 people stranded.

Village head, Saad Awang, said the 16-year-old bridge collapsed about 2am after the river rose sharply, with strong currents.

“The bridge was already bending over a period of five to six months and we had referred the matter to the relevant authorities including the Pasir Gudang Municipal Council.

“It should have been in the process of being repaired, but we did not expect the bridge to collapse so fast,” he told reporters at the scene today.

Saad said for now, they were looking for ways to provide an alternative route for the villagers to cross the river to go to town.

“We fear that in case of an emergency like what had happened this morning when an infant had breathing difficulties, we had to take the baby via the bridge on foot before taking a car on the other side of the bridge,” he said.Most of the residents are affected by this incident because factory workers and school pupils in the area need to cross the bridge to get to their destinations.“This evening, a military bridge will be installed. Meanwhile, the council will work with the Public Works Department to repair the damaged bridge,” said Tanjung Puteri Zone councillor, Syahrin Md Jamaluddin.He said a free shuttle service was also being provided to facilitate travel for villagers comprising 200 families who were cut off because their vehicles were stranded in the village.

Another Hamas Terror Tunnel Collapses in Gaza

Another Hamas terror tunnel has collapsed in Gaza on Wednesday evening, a day after another tunnel collapsed and killed two Hamas terrorists.

The Jerusalem Post reports that Hamas blocked off the area around the tunnel and was making sure that Gaza-based radio stations were not reporting details of the incident.

It is unclear if there were any casualties in the incident.

This is at least the third such terror-tunnel collapse in recent weeks.

Seven Hamas terrorists died in a tunnel collapse last week, which they say was caused by heavy rainfall.

Hamas held a large procession in their honor, lauding them as “Martyrs of the Preparation,” a reference to their work digging tunnels used to attack Israel.

Hamas has built a sophisticated network of tunnels that it has used to penetrate Israel to carry out terrorist attacks on civilians and soldiers. Israel destroyed most of the tunnels during the summer of 2014, but Hamas has since worked vigorously to rebuild the network, many times at the expense of Gazans, from whom they steal building materials which they use for military build-up.

“The resistance factions are in a state of ongoing preparation underground, above ground, on land and sea,” Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh boasted at a rally honoring the seven dead.

Bridge collapse snaps road link with 2 Patuakhali UZs

An iron bridge on Dakua Canal on Galachipa-Dashmina road collapsed on Sunday, snapping road communication between the two upazilas upazilas of the district.

The bridge was built by Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) around 20 years ago. 

Abul Hossain, a trader at Chiknikandi Bazar under Galachipa upazila, said some steel sleepers on the north side of the bridge collapsed when a goods-laden truck was crossing the bridge.

"The bridge had become vulnerable due to lack of proper renovation, but we could use it to communicate easily with Galachipa and Dashmina upazilas. Now we have to face problems," he added.

Abdul Mannan, another trader of the area, demanded immediate steps to repair the bridge, considering the interest of the locals.

Contacted, Md Atiqur Rahman, engineer of Galachipa upazila LGED, said they have already informed the higher authorities about the matter and urged them to take immediate steps to repair the brigde.

"We are looking to build a new bridge on the canal," he said.

New Kitagata Bridge on the verge of collapse

Posted on January 31, 2016

Users of Ishaka- Kitagata- Kagamba Road have expressed fear at the new bridge at Ngaromwenda near Kitagata Hot springs on the under construction Ishaka-Kitagata- Kagamba Road. The new was built less than a year ago but has already developed cracks and part of it has already gone off. Ishaka- Kagamba Road is still under construction by Dott Services Limited but they were not the ones contracted to work on the bridge.

Residents have called on Allen Kagina, Executive Director of Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) and her team to act quickly because the bridge may collapse soon.

“This road has a lot of traffic especially heavily loaded trailers from Kasese to Congo and Rwanda so we needed a stronger bridge like the old one”, a road user said. Interestingly the old bridge built in 1970s is still strong and hard. The works on the new bridge were shoddy.

Eight Hamas members ‘missing’ after Gaza tunnel collapse

Eight members of Hamas are missing after collapse of tunnel in Gaza Strip caused by rain and flooding.


Digging deep to survive (…) or die

2016-01-27 12:09:43

GAZA CITY - Eight members of the militant group Hamas were missing Wednesday after the collapse of a tunnel in the Gaza Strip caused by rain and flooding, a security source said.

The tunnel collapsed overnight in the area of Jabalia in the north of the Palestinian enclave after several days of rainfall, the security source in the area said on condition of anonymity.

"The resistance tunnel collapsed last night due to the weather and flooding," the source said, adding that the tunnel belonged to Hamas, the Islamist movement that rules the Gaza Strip.

"There were 11 resistance men inside. Three of them escaped in the first hour after the accident, but the security operation... continues to search for the eight others."

Such collapses have previously occurred in the coastal strip, which is under an Israeli blockade and has seen three wars with the Jewish state since 2008.

On Saturday, a tunnel collapse killed a 30-year-old man, according to Hamas officials. Residents said the tunnel was located in Al-Maghazi in the central Gaza Strip.

In December, 14 Palestinians were rescued after being stranded for hours in a tunnel near the Egyptian border when it flooded and partially collapsed.

During a 50-day conflict in 2014, Israeli warplanes destroyed a large part of the underground network of tunnels used by Gazans.

At the end of 2014, Egypt began the construction of a buffer zone in the northern Sinai Peninsula, on the border with Gaza, including destroying hundreds of tunnels it says are used for smuggling weapons.

Hamas has reportedly rebuilt tunnels destroyed in the 2014 conflict that Israeli officials say could be used to carry out attacks.

Israel's blockade severely restricts the movement of people and goods into and out of the enclave.

Egypt's sole border with Gaza has also remained largely closed following the 2013 overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, effectively trapping the 1.8 million Gazans into the territory.

THANH HOA (VNS) — Three people died while four others were buried under rubble when a stone mine collapsed here this morning in Dong Son Hamlet, Yen Lam Commune, Yen Dinh District.

Witnesses heard a huge explosion. The falling rocks trapped all the workers inside the mine, which is managed by the Tuan Hung Company.

"Three workers died at the scene, while many others are still buried under the pile of rocks," Nguyen Minh Thanh, a witness, told a reporter of phapluatplus.vn.

District and provincial police authorities dispatched injured workers to the 
hospital and initiated a rescue operation for those trapped in the collapsed mine.

Deputy Chairman of Yen Lam Commune Nguyen Quang Phi said the rescue team faced many difficulties in digging up the large pile of fallen rocks in the rain.

The local authorities are inspecting the cause of the deaths of the three workers.
This is the third serious accident to occur at a workplace in Thanh Hoa Province, with a total of 15 fatalities since the beginning of this year.

Previously, a scaffold collapse killed four people at the construction site of a bridge project in Ta Pan Village, Trung Son Commune, on January 9.

Eight residents also died due to carbon monoxide poisoning inside a lime kiln in Hoang Giang Commune, Nong Cong District, on January 1. — VNS

Five people are still trapped underground at Eskom’s Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme.
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom says one person has died after a tunnel collapsed at its Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme on the border between KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State.
According to the power utility, five others are still trapped underground.
There is no official confirmation about any injuries.
More than 15 workers were at the scheme at the time the tunnel collapsed.
Eskom says the scheme is under construction in preparation to go live next year.
The project will see water being pumped up the Drakensberg mountain range from Braamhoek Dam.
Eskom’s Andrew Etzinger says rescue operations are underway and they are still investigating the matter.
“At the moment, we’re still ascertaining the extent of the injuries. We’ll provide information to the media as soon as we have more [information].”*Earlier it was reported that three people died, six people were injured and eight people were trapped underground. Eskom has revised these figures down.
