10452379_10101561084671158_2179499284613072170_n[Official Report] About 7am this morning (6 Aug 2014) a commercial fuel tanker attempted to cross the Kingston Bridge traveling from Kainantu towards the Aiyura Valley. While the truck was on the bridge the bridge collapsed under the load. Both the bridge and the truck fell into the river below. Reports are that the driver is okay, but we have no further information on his condition. The bridge is not passable by vehicle.

Any supplies we need have to come over it and we use it to get to other places in the country. Pray that a new bridge is installed soon, and for the people effected (it is a huge water source for many, and now it is contaminated by the fuel truck that went in when it collapsed). Also pray for short term ways we can problem solve by getting things to and from Ukarumpa by road..
