WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A pre-World War II apartment house collapsed Saturday in southwestern Poland, leaving five people dead, four injured and one missing, authorities said.

Scores of firefighters with dogs were searching the rubble of the building in the town of Swiebodzice (Shvyeh-'boh-tchi-tseh), according to Daniel Mucha, regional spokesman for the firefighters. He said the collapse of two floors of the three-floor building might have been caused by a gas explosion.

Regional governor Pawel Hreniak said the search-and-rescue operation was expected to continue through Sunday.

He confirmed five fatalities, including two school-age children.

Still, firefighters looking for one more missing person said there were no sounds yet coming from the building's bricks and broken wood.

Prime Minister Beata Szydlo was heading to the site, 420 kilometers (250 miles) southwest of Warsaw, to be with the victims and the rescue workers.

The governor of Swiebodzice, Bogdan Kozuchowicz, said the pre-World War II building was recently renovated and had been in good technical condition.

The injured were taken to hospitals in Swiebodzice and in Wroclaw. One survivor, identified only by her first name Stanislawa, told TVN24 that she was "miraculously saved."

"I was in the kitchen and suddenly it was dark and full of debris and some broken wooden planks," she said from her hospital bed in Swiebodzice. "I got on top of those planks and started calling 'Help! Help!' Two firefighters came and pulled me out by the arm."

She said her husband was resting on the bed at the time of the collapse.

"I don't know what has happened to him," she said, her voice trembling.

With her teenage son, also a survivor, at her side, she said the family had lost everything.

Tunnel collapse knocks Nepal’s 100-kW Budum Rivulet Micro Hydropower offline


The canal that supplies water to the 100-kW Budum Rivulet Micro Hydropower project in Nepal has collapsed, news agencies are reporting.

The project, at Gudel of Mahakulung rural municipality in the Solukhumbu district, began operating in 2015.

It is reported that a 30-meter-long section of the canal collapsed and will take a minimum of one month to repair. More than 750 households have lost electricity as a result of the collapse.


We have described a time preceding the last weeks when emergency management teams would be exhausted, turning a deaf ear in countries like the US and Britain to cries of "terrorism" and a need to install martial law. What could cause such a state, worldwide? Earthquakes have increased in frequency and strength, and accidents in the stretch zones are increasing because the plates have loosened up and are moving a greater distance during each adjustment. The recent breaks in Internet cables around the Arabian Plate are a case in point. Where earthquakes of lower magnitude are registered and often felt, when they increase in size to a magnitude 6 or 7 or greater, infrastructure is destroyed.

What will it be like when earthquakes are happening to most cities around the world, simultaneously? Stretch zones will experience even more destruction, as the infrastructure will be pulled apart. Gas mains will explode into holocausts. Travel will become impossible when roadways are torn apart or heaved up. And the increasingly volatile atmosphere, jerked about by the wobble, will make air travel treacherous. Where faltering on occasion now, satellites will falter increasingly, making communications difficult. All this leads to panic, so that distracted workers cause malfunctions in services. This can be expected before the last weeks arrive.

A towering arch bridge over a bay in eastern Taiwan has collapsed, sending a burning oil tanker truck falling on to boats in the water below.

An air force helicopter, fishing vessels and more than 60 military personnel including divers are searching for possible victims.

Six people, all foreigners, are missing and believed trapped on one of the fishing boats, the National Fire Agency said.

The collapse sent a burning oil tanker truck on to boats in the water below.

Interior minister Hsu Kuo-yung told reporters that five people were feared to have been on the bridge when it collapsed. Ten people were taken to hospital, six of them with serious injuries.

The 460ft-long bridge collapsed in Nanfangao, a tiny but often-crowded Pacific coast fishing village.

The weather at the time was sunny, but the collapse occurred hours after a typhoon swept by the island.

Disaster relief officials would not say if the storm had weakened the bridge or give other details on the cause. The government-run Central News Agency said a bridge pier may have collapsed.

Wall collapse beside bridge in Carlow damages water supply to local homes


It seems the heavy rain overnight has taken its toll in some areas locally.

In Carlow, it’s believed to have led to a wall leading onto Aghade Bridge subsiding

When that happened, it also damaged one of the water mains and Irish Water say that there are now interruptions to the supply around Ardattin, Ballynoe, Knocknatubrid and the surrounds.

Local councillor, John Murphy has been down to see the damage this afternoon:

“The workers are there at the moment and hopefully the water [supply] will be back to houses that are cut off in the next couple of hours.

“There’s not a massive amount of damage. If it was on the bridge it would be a much bigger problem but it’s not.

“It’s between the bridge and the entrance into a private house. It’ll take a bit of work but it’s not something that can’t be repaired.”

Meanwhile, in Kilkenny the Bleach Road is once again flooded.

Local Gardaí say it’s impassable at the moment.

Bridge under construction now in danger of collapse in Oneida County

State and county officials in Oneida County have closed off a bridge over the Erie Canal due to “an imminent bridge collapse.”

The bridge in Durhamville, a hamlet in Oneida County east of Sylvan Beach, is on Higginsville Rd. It's also called County Road 50A. The NYS DOT says the bridge had been under construction since June, but something shifted Thursday and they believe the bridge could collapse at any time.

According to a post on Facebook from the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, the NYS Department of Transportation and Canal Corp asked them for help making sure boats do not go under the bridge.

Oneida County Marine Patrol and the Sylvan Beach Fire Department shut down canal traffic. They say all boaters should stay away from this area until it is deemed safe.

Hutchinson Ferry Road bridge at Florida-Georgia line collapses, sends cars airborne

Posted: 10:15 AM, Aug 21, 2019

QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) — A collapsed road on the Florida-Georgia line has people in one Quincy neighborhood feeling trapped.

Neighbors say that now that this road here on Hutchinson Ferry Road is closed and another road nearby closed, they're wondering what the county will do to make sure that they are able to leave their houses quickly.

Concern began for those in the area after a raised, bridge-like structure collapsed Wednesday morning on Hutchinson Ferry Road. The Gadsden County Administrator says the collapse came from excessive rain and more traffic due to utility trucks responding to Hurricane Michael recovery.

People who live nearby say the road always seemed unstable to them. One neighbor tells us that the county patched up parts of the road a couple of times this year. But the real cause for concern is that an intersecting road less than a mile away is also shut down. With two streets blocked off, people say it's becoming a hassle.

"Can't get out there and walk like I'm supposed to. And as long as I sit there and I try to do what I'm supposed to do, what the doctor told me to do, and then you've got people that lives on this road that works in Bainbridge or goes into Quincy, they can't even get through the bridges," said one person.

The Gadsden County Administrator tells us that the road is kept up by the county, but F-DOT is assisting with these repairs. The Gadsden County Administrator tells me he has no idea when the road will be repaired.

Authorities say the bridge on Hutchinson Ferry Road in Quincy collapsed, sending two drivers to the hospital Wednesday morning.

The Decatur County Sheriff's office and Decatur County Fire Rescue says that the bridge on Hutchinson Ferry Road at the Florida-Georgia Line in Quincy has collapsed, prompting a road closure.

They say all local traffic has been detoured and rerouted due to the collapse.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, two different cars went airborne over the collapse around 5:10 a.m. Wednesday morning.

FHP says the two vehicles were traveling south on Hutchinson Ferry Road just south of Lewis Lane.

The first vehicle, a Chevy Silverado, became airborne over a gap in the road caused by a collapsed bridge on Hutchinson Ferry Road. When the truck hit the road, troopers say it overturned onto it's roof before coming to a final stop.

Approximately 30 minutes later, FHP says a Ford Taurus also flew over the gap in the road. As a result, the front of the Ford Taurus was damaged, along with the undercarriage.

The family of the first driver says he was hospitalized with serious injuries and is awaiting surgery. FHP says the person who was driving the second car was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare with minor injuries.

As of 12 p.m., crews were on scene evaluating the damage and lowering boats into the water below the collapse.

Deputies are asking everyone traveling in that area keep your eyes open and watch for road hazards.

Death Averted As Pedestrian Bridge Collapses In Lagos

Happening Now: Abuja residents trapped, seek help as Dutse link bridges collapses amidst heavy downpour, flood

The residents of Obasanjo road community in Dutsen Sagbagyi II of Bwari Area Council, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), are crying for help and immediate intervention from FCT and Bwari Area Council authorities after three bridges connecting the community to the main road (Old Bwari road), collapsed and washed away by heavy flood caused by Monday heavy downpour.

Duste is a suburb located within the Bwari Area Council of FCT.

The rain which was still poring heavily as at the time of filling this report, started in the early hours of Monday and has resulted in the total and complete collapse of all the bridges on the only road which connects the community to other parts of Abuja.

As a result, residents, majority of the people that go to work and do businesses outside the community are left stranded, a situation that neither cars, motor cycle, nor legs could pass through the deep valleys/canals and the heavy flooding flowing through the open valleys.

Obasanjo road community, officially called Dutsen Sagbagyi II, is situated in a mountainous/hilly layout behind Dutse Baupma, off old Bwari road, off Dutse-Bwari Highway, in Bwari Area Council of FCT.

The community is comprised of five different layouts/settlements, which include Freedom avenue layout, Anglican street layout, Obasanjo road layout, Mountain side layout and new layout.

These layouts are popularly and collectively called Obasanjo road, Dutse Sagbagyi II community.

According to residents, one striking attraction in this community is that it is a new community, which within a few years of its occupation, is known to be a well-planned settlement and well designed buildings, which makes it different from many communities that are characterised by haphazard building arrangement and disorderliness.

They said, “Since inception, residents of Obasanjo road community had shouldered the responsibility of the construction, repairs and maintenance of the major link road, putting and fortifying the bridges and opening up new roads.

“Also, the residents of community have been buying transformers and providing electricity for themselves and making private security arrangements, through communal efforts, which has made the community a reference point as far as rural planning, orderliness and peace as obtainable in a modern society, are concerned.

“Now, residents of the community find it hard to swallow the reality that a road and the bridges they had laboured to construct and constantly maintained, have now been destroyed completely by heavy flood. The residents are crying; they need the help of concerned Nigerians, both from the Government, organisations and individuals to come to thier aid. If nothing urgent is done, the residents would be cut off permanently from the outside world and every business and economic activities would have been completely and permanently grounded.

“Moreover, our children would not be able to go school when schools resumes in a matter of days.”

According to Mr. Ikechukwu, one of the residents who lives in the Community, “it is really disheartening seeing all our efforts and resources over the years completely washed away.”

Mr. Ikechukwu then appealed to appropriate authorities to come to their aid to construct and fix the bridges for the community, “as the community may not be able to find the construction of the bridges by the residents alone.

Also lamenting, another member of the community, Mr. Nicholas, who according to him, after receiving a phone call from a resident that a bridge has collapsed, was on his way to see for himself and ascertain the extent of damage when he saw residents gathered in another bridge which was equally completely destroyed, that not even leg can pass through, let alone vehicles.

According to Mr. Nicholas, “We are saddened by this calamity that has befallen this hardworking people of Obasanjo road community. This is a collosal damage not only to the fabric of the only road linking and connecting the community to the outside world, but has paralyzed every form of economic and business activity in the community, moreso that no one can pass through anywhere the collapsed bridges to go to work.”

He furtherdecired a situation where all past appeals that have been made to relevant authorities to come to the aid of the community with respect to these bridges did not yield any positive results from the authorities.

Mr. Nicholas said, “the bridges have been begging for better and stronger action to fortify them against heavy rains such that happened last night. We, through the community representatives, i.e. the Exco had written to relevant authorities to come to our help, as the costs required to fortify the bridges against being washed away by heavy rains were beyond our power. Since then, no authority or organisation has done anything before the collapse of these bridges today.

“On behalf of the residents of this community, we join in inviting the Federal Government of Nigeria, the Federal Capital Development Authority and Bwari Area Council to come and see for themselves and urgently come to the aid of this community by re- constructing the bridges and the road, so that the residents will not be trapped permanently in their enclave.

“We also call upon corporate organisations and individuals, such as MTN, which has one of its communication mast in the community; Dangote Group, National Emergency Management Authority(NEMA), ULO group of companies, which has one of its quarry company in the community; World Bank projects, etc to come to the aid of the community.”
