Russian Bridge Swings in the Wind
Sponsored link:

A brand new bridge in Volgograd, Russia had to be closed down when gusts of wind caused it to swing. This phenomenon is called "resonance". This is the same force that can cause a soprano's voice to shatter a glass. The bridge across Volga river is 1260 meters (4100 feet) long and 32 meters (100 feet) wide. It was opened less than a year ago in October 2009.

A similar incident occured on Nov. 7, 1940, when the Tacoma Narrows Suspension Bridge in Washington collapsed due to wind-induced vibrations. See video.
