Bridge Collapse GIF

Bridge Collapse GIF The Minneapolis I-35W bridge collapse was caught on video by what appears to be a security or traffic camera.

I’ve taken the liberty of converting the footage to an animated GIF, trimming out the extra “woman running by” footage and removing the frame lag. This makes the movement of the disaster run about two or three times faster than it actually happened, giving it a strange and scary fluidity. There are also a few gaps in the footage, which become much more visible with the increased frame rate.

I’ve uploaded the animation to Photobucket and on Tinypic. Mirror freely.
