Relief Funds Granted by Biden Administration for Baltimore Bridge Collapse

Maryland Governor Wes Moore said there’s a long way to go to fix the damage from the bridge collapse in Baltimore. The Biden administration approved $60 million in help after the collapse.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is bringing in a big crane to help remove the broken bridge. Governor Moore thanked everyone for the help during a news conference.

They are working hard to clean up the area, move the cargo ship, find the missing workers, and figure out what happened.

“Government is working together with the industry to find out what happened and remove the ship,” said Governor Moore. He said quick help is needed to start fixing things.

Senator Chris Van Hollen said many people are helping to survey and clean up the collapse site.

Divers found two workers’ bodies in a truck under the water near the bridge. But they can’t get to four other missing workers because of the wreckage.

The National Transportation Safety Board is looking into what caused the crash. They’re checking the ship’s electronics and talking to the captain and crew.

Most of the ship’s crew are from India. The workers who died were from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

During a baseball game, three officers were honored for stopping traffic on the bridge during the crash.

The ship was going from Baltimore to Sri Lanka. It’s managed by Synergy Marine Group.

The International Longshoremen’s Association is trying to help its workers find other jobs while the port is closed.

The ship had almost 4,700 containers, 56 of them had dangerous stuff inside. But it seems like most of it wasn’t damaged.

The Coast Guard is cleaning up some oil that leaked from the ship. They’re also making sure the cargo doesn’t spread in the water.

The bridge collapse will cause problems for many people, including dockworkers and people who drive in the area.

Officials are working to reopen the port and rebuild the bridge, but they don’t know how long it will take.

From 1960 to 2015, 35 big bridges worldwide collapsed because of ship crashes, according to a group that looks at water transport.
