I-35W Bridge Collapse in Minnesota

The I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota has collapsed into the river. As of this writing (9pm CDT) there is one confirmed drowning death. I feel like I should say something, but I don't know what to say. I'm simply in shock. Every time I cross the Arkansas River near Webbers Falls, OK I remember the bridge collapse there 5 years ago. It's always been my greatest fear while driving: having an accident and falling into the river below.
