I-5 Bridge Collapse Burlington to Mount Vernon Wa. *with an update

on May 23, 2013

A bridge less than a mile away from my house has just collapsed, Burlington to Mount Vernon, Washington. There is so much unknown right now and I am shocked. Once I heard the news I realized I had actually heard the bridge collapse, but I chalked it up to thunder (although it was odd because it was not typical thunder and lightning weather). There are cars and people in the water and no one really knows if they are ok.

I am shocked!


I travel that road so often.

I normally run errands on Thursdays. (today)

The only reason I wasn’t out was because My toddler has a fever. YIKES!

I am definitely hoping everyone is rescued.

Life is so precious, I pray for everyone involved. I am so grateful for my family’s safety. Just a reminder, tell your family you love them.

If you want more info click here to read the earliest info on our local news station.

****Update*** I have noticed many of my readers are interested in the bridge collapse. What information can I, as a local, give u? Comment below and I will do my best to answer!
