A train bridge over the Big Sioux River in the north Sioux City, Iowa, collapsed due to heavy flooding. The span connecting the Riverside area and the north Sioux City collapsed around 11 p.m. after heavy rains, causing widespread disruption.

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office had begun closing bridges and roads prior to the collapse, avoiding any right away damage or collisions. Officials described the scene as dramatic, with the bridge “caved in the center and now in the river,” according to The Mirror.


Storms have hit the Midwest hard, causing widespread damage. the governor Kim Reynolds declared disasters in twenty the north regions, such as Sioux County. Crews work continuously to evaluate the harm and predict the long-term effects on commuter trains.

It has disrupted local travel as well as significant railroad offerings, as the span was used for carrying grain as well as crushed stone from North Sioux City to Sioux Falls.

Flood warnings are in place for rivers in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Heavy rains have forced many residents to evacuate their homes.

National Weather Service meteorologist Donna Dubberke noted that parts of northern Nebraska, southeastern South Dakota, southern Minnesota, and northwest Iowa received eight times their usual rainfall. More heavy rain is expected this week.
