Creek swelled by California snowmelt 'rips apart' bridge

A bridge over Green Creek in Bridgeport, Calif., was damaged on June 20, 2017, after flood warnings were issued by the National Weather Service in Reno, who said that high temperatures were contributing to rapid snowmelt in high-elevation basins. The nearby Twin Lakes Resort posted footage of the bridge damage to Instagram, commenting: “Green Creek, once that little trickle, is now strong enough to rip apart the bridge.”
