Wow, the whole thing came down in second! Search "Baltimore bridge" for a video. Horrible.

I am totally shocked how that bridge came down. I’ve seen video of bridges coming down by controlled demo. This bridge looked like it came down more efficiently. The container ship looked like it lost power regained power lost it again and then it was to late after the power came back.

I was a Combat Engineer...

Do not be suprised at how little it takes to do that..

Mebee you shouldn't think about it

 

You may loose sleep... :0/

The Francis Scott Key Bridge. This type of thing happens all the time just like train derailments, right???

Loaded 1000 foot container ship doing 6-8 knots has incredible wrecking power.
That it happened at 1:30 am saved a lot of lives.
It appears there was a construction crew of 6 lost so far.

Uncommon, but not unprecedented. See: https://www.wbaltv.com/article/ships-barges-hitting-us-bridges/60306153

According to one report the bridge was inspected in 2021. Its condition was rated “fair.” So maybe no surprise it collapsed so easily.

so sorry to hear this news we had our bridge hit by a ship in 1972 in Hobart Tasmania , the Tasman bridge which joins western to eastern Hobart , many people perished ,the ship is still on the sea bed under the bridge , took years to rebuild ,

I don't know how much better a new bridge would do with a loaded freighter (cars) ramming it at 8 knots into its side.
Bridges are designed more for compression than sheer.

We had a similar accident in Sweden 1980. Seven deaths, and it took more than 2 years to build a new bridge.

It would have been worst but for the SOS the ship sent out which caused a stoppage of
traffic. The guys working on the road not so lucky.

Its amazing how easily things that take years to build come down in seconds. Im sure theres more to come, hopefully not soon.

That cargo ship bridge cant possibly have visuals less than 10 miles with 8-10 stories of cargo. Guess they know what theyre doing though.

If....
If..one were to look at this from a Militairy point of view..

This would have been a raging .. Great Boon in warfare....

Hampering important supplys..

Not claiming that this is the case...
But the effect is all the same...

Hmmm.  We've been hit with bioweapon attacks, numerous attacks on our infrastructure, train derailments, food supply, energy sources, invasion of our southern border, numerous arson fires (that we are supposed to believe have to do with "climate change", and now this?  Where was the tugboat that was supposed to escort the ship?  Was the harbor master asleep? 

Look up 5th Generation warfare.  WW3 started four years ago and it's about to go fully kinetic on our home soil

You just turn everything into a conspircacy and reject anyone who says sometimes an accident is an accident as part of the same conspiracy. Your whole like seems to be consumed by this stuff.

If you say so....what's your rationale for the lack of tug boat escort for this ship?

But take a step back and ask yourself this question.  If you could speak to yourself from say 2018 and tell yourself everything you have seen these past four years, what would your 2018 self say to you?

According to various highly-knowledgeable sources I've seen (I follow commercial shipping for the simple reason that it interests me) ships leaving the Port of Baltimore routinely release the tugs before passing that bridge. There's plenty of water there and the channel is well-marked. They still had two pilots on board.

I've seen a surprising number of conspiracy theories on this incident so far - including a Twitter video in which someone claimed the routine flashing of warning beacons was claimed to be explosive charges.

And I am reminded of a fabulous quote from British author Alan Moore:

“The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory, is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory.

The truth is far more frightening - Nobody is in control.

The world is rudderless.”

 

So, as it turns out, was the ship.
