A bridge too far

Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the state’s emergency management division continue to assess the flood damage, MPR’s Tim Nelson is reporting this afternoon.

This is the iconic image of the still-unfolding disaster:

That’s not going to buff out.

The close-up photos of the bridge adjacent to the Lake Shady dam in Oronoco have been posted to the Facebook page of Minnesota’s Homeland Security Emergency Management agency. There is also an album of pictures from the Civil Air Patrol of Highway 169 in the St. Peter area.

    You have to be kidding me. Homeland Security is using Facebook?!

    Oh, and this makes me wonder. If I can’t access a government website (MN DHS via Facebook) from work, are there larger legal issues involved?

    That looks like a bridge not far enough, Bob.
