Disasters

Security and traffic cameras caught the 35W bridge collapse as it was happening. Here are two different angles. In the first video, as my friend Christopher pointed out, a couple seconds in, there are suddenly no cars in the far lane. Then the near lane traffic stops. Then you see a car coming back the wrong way. It's pretty spooky.





Here's helicopter footage after it happened.



And as long as we're on the subject of deteriorating infrastructure, here is security camera footage of the Manhattan steam pipe explosion. Watch at the top of the screen by the 18 in date, right about 13 seconds in.
