This day in history...

...
Tacoma, WA (1940)
High winds struck the Tacoma-Narrows Bridge at a critical angle, causing caused vibrations which eventually collapsed the $6 million, four-month-old bridge. Maximum wind speed of 31 mph recorded in downtown Tacoma; probably higher over Puget Sound.

Interesting timing -- we had a nice blustery storm blow through this morning with wind gusts up to 30mpn and I was directed (a long way) around a flooded road on my way to work...
