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.

Thousands suffer as bailey bridge collapse snaps road link

A Correspondent
26 July, 2015 12:00 AM

Nilphamari: Around 50 thousand people of five upazilas in Nilphamari and Panchgarh districts are badly suffering as a bailey bridge over Aoliakhana river in Balagram village of the district collapsed on Thursday night.
Locals said a portion of the bridge collapsed with a big bang at around 9:30pm when a stone-laden truck was crossing it.
The Pabna-bound truck from Panchagarh along with a motorbike plunged into the river after bridge collapse.
Being informed, villagers rushed to the spot and rescued the truck driver, his assistant and motorcyclist in unconscious state and admitted them to Jaldhaka Health Complex.
The rescued were identified as truck driver Yakub Ali, 40, of Pabna, his assistant Md Russel, 25, of Pabna and motorcyclist Sumon, 26, of Nilphamari.
Tanvir Siddiquee, executive engineer of Roads and Highways Department (RHD) in Nilphamari, alleged that the truck boarded the bridge ignoring cautionary signals of the RHD.
The RHD hoisted red flags on both ends of the bridge as a warning signal, forbidding heavy vehicles from using the bridge, he added.
The authority will construct a new bailey bridge at the same place within a few days to restore communication on the Jaldhaka-Domar-Dimla road, added the RHD official.
Delwar Hossain Inam, officer-in-charge of Jaldhaka Police Station, said all the three victims were rescued

Man feared dead as truck plunges into River Densu

• Some of the military divers and local residents trying to find the submerged tipper truck in the Densu River.

A 33-year-old man is feared dead after a tipper truck loaded with stones and sand on which he was plunged into the Densu River at Ashalaja, near Amasaman in Accra, last Tuesday. - See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/news/general-news/45926-man-feared-dead-as-tr...

The man, Nii Annan, was in the company of the driver of the truck, identified only as Ashaley, 35, at the time of the incident at about 8 p.m.

The 22-cubic-feet tipper truck submerged when it plunged into the river, following the collapse of the Bailey bridge it was crossing.
Some residents of the area who rushed to the scene immediately after the incident managed to rescue Ashaley, whose whereabouts were not known as of press time.

Briefing the Daily Graphic, the Amasaman District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mr Elvis Bawa Sandongo, said the tipper truck was travelling from Amasaman towards Ashalaja and on reaching the middle of the Bailey bridge on the Densu River, the bridge caved in.

The bridge connects Ashalaja and Ayikai Doblo to adjoining communities in the Ga West Municipality.

Mr Sandongo explained that the bridge, which was about 60 feet in length, was constructed by Field Engineers of the Ghana Armed Forces for temporary use and had become weak as a result of the abuse of its weight limitation.

At Least Three Injured as Washington State Ice Caves Collapse Again

At least three people were injured when ice caves on a remote Washington state mountainside partly collapsed for the second straight day, authorities said Monday night.

Susan Gregg, a spokeswoman for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, said the hospital was treating two males for head lacerations and leg fractures after the incident at the Big Four Ice Caves in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. A female patient arrived shortly afterward, Gregg said.

Their conditions hadn't been determined, but all were awake and were being evaluated, Gregg said.

Snohomish County emergency officials remained tight-lipped about the rescue effort. But NBC station KING of Seattle posted video showing several people lying on the ground as others in uniform appeared to tend to them.

It was the second straight day that part of the ice caves — which are accessible only by a 26-mile narrow, winding road — collapsed on Big Four Mountain, about 20 miles east of the town of Granite Falls. No one was injured in Sunday's collapse, which a visitor captured on video.

The caves are formed when runoff from melting snow hollows out a tunnel in snow mounds that slide off the mountain and collect at the base of a cliff. The main cave, nearly 100 feet deep and 25 feet wide, is among the most popular hiking destinations in the Cascade Mountains.

Bridge collapse strands cars near Johns Island marina

Posted: Jul 03, 2015 12:59 PM EDTUpdated: Jul 03, 2015 1:51 PM EDT

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A bridge collapse connecting a Johns Island marina means an inconvenience for motorists whose vehicles are stranded on the other side.

C.C. Caudle says both of her family's cars are on the other side of a bridge at St. Johns Yacht Harbor that she was told collapsed between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m Friday.

"We have no idea what's going to happen," Caudle said.

Her husband drove to Charleston last Sunday for the week to work on their boat. She said she arrived Thursday night for the weekend, then learned Friday morning a section of the bridge appeared to have fallen.

Caudle said the bridge had been down to one lane for some time and said she was relieved to hear no one was hurt. But the collapse meant she had to call her daughter for a ride to the store.

"The only two cars we have are over there," she said.

There is no word on the cause of the collapse or how soon repairs can be made.

Shenzhen Metro Tunnel Collapses… for the 4th Time This Year

The collapse left one person dead and many others injured

A Shenzhen Metro tunnel under construction collapsed yesterday, trapping five workers and killing one. It happened yesterday on Shenzhen’s future Line 7, located between Fumin and Huanggang in Futian District at 4:10pm. Ten meters of tunnel collapsed, causing a three meter deep hole on the surface above. At the time of the incident, the five workers were changing the blades on the digging mechanism.

The trapped survivors were rescued by firefighters, with three requiring medical attention for their injuries. The last person to be rescued was freed at 11:35 last night.

The cause has not yet been determined. Nearly 50 residents living in houses above the cave-in have been evacuated from their homes as a safety precaution. Emergency repairs have been made as workers were later seen pouring cement into the hole on the surface.

This is not the first time construction on a subway tunnel in Shenzhen has led to a collapse.

This past February, a huge sinkhole that appeared in Luohu District was suspected to be due to construction for the Shenzhen Metro Line 9. Last November, a tunnel under construction for Line 7 caused a road to collapse near Fumin Road and Yitian Road. Last October, construction on Yinhu Station on Metro Line 9 led to yet another collapse.

Up until yesterday’s tragedy, no tunnel collapses in Shenzhen have involved any fatalities.

Despite this frequency, the building of the Shenzhen Metro has been criticized for improper safety protocols as far back as 2013. In July of that year, a tunnel for Line 9 collapsed, trapping seven workers and later prompting criticism that construction for the subway tunnels was using inferior building materials and work procedures.

Subway tunnel collapses have also been occurring throughout China. Over the past year, subway tunnels that have collapsed during construction killed one person in Shenyang last month, and another in Nanning last October. As well, Beijing suffered one such incident last March.

No heavy rain, but bridge collapses, 3 dead in South Cotabato

June 25, 2015

RESIDENTS of the village of Concepcion in Koronadal City find themselves cut off from the rest of the city after strong river currents swept away a portion of the village bridge. AL SALUDO/CONTRIBUTOR

RESIDENTS of the village of Concepcion in Koronadal City find themselves cut off from the rest of the city after strong river currents swept away a portion of the village bridge. AL SALUDO/CONTRIBUTOR

KORONADAL CITY—Three people were killed, a major bridge was damaged and several areas of South Cotabato were submerged in flood waters following hours of light to moderate rain that started on Tuesday.

Tupi, South Cotabato Mayor Reynaldo Tamayo said separate landslides took place in Barangay Bunao and Lunen and killed three people.

Tamayo did not identify those killed but added that the landslides were triggered by the rain.

Koronadal City Mayor Peter Miguel said a tricycle driver was also injured when the bridge in Barangay Concepcion collapsed as he was crossing it early Wednesday.

The driver, who was also not identified, was rescued after falling off the bridge and is now recuperating at the provincial hospital.

Miguel said the bridge collapse was due to the strong current of the river at the height of the rain.

He said the rain also triggered floods that displaced at least 1,000 families in three low-lying villages of this city.

Miguel said in a radio interview that classes in all levels in the city had been suspended.

In nearby Banga town, at least 700 families were also displaced when floodwaters swept into four villages and damaged several houses.

South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance Fuentes said floods were also reported in the towns of Norala and Tupi.

In the town of Rosario, Cavite province, flooding on Tuesday caused the suspension of classes in one of the town’s biggest villages, Poblacion.

“A little rain here causes flood already,” said Sid Samaniego, municipal media relations officer.
