  • Description

    'Old Man Weather' plays many cruel tricks. VISNEWS filmed a freighter, torn from its moorings by gale winds, ramming a bridge at Buffalo, New York, Jan 22. One 200-foot span toppled with a roar, crashing down on the ship's stern. Hours later the wind blew down the other tower--just missing a passing fireboat--and crushed two parked cars.

    Three bridge tenders had narrow escapes..they got away, but two were slightly hurt. Officials say it will lost five million dollars to replace the span.
