That is a bridge I've been on several times on business travel to Minneapolis and the surrounding area. My best thoughts go out to all those affected, and Emily, my prayers that your friend is found safely.

My daughter is a student there and her apt. and lab are just a few blocks from the collapse. I couldn't reach her for hours tonight because all the lines were jammed. Was relieved when I finally talked to her. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone with family and friends involved in this tragedy. Emily, let us know if your friend is found. I know that cell phone communication is a problem with so many calling tonight.

Wow - what can you say about something like that. How terrifying for all involved and my heart goes out to everyone it has affected.

Emily- my thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend. Hopefully, it's just that she can't get to a phone and is ok. Hang in there.

Editing to say this must have been posted before it got to be as bad, however so far 7 people have died, according to the news.
