Hi, I'm Carl Azuz.
And this is CNN STUDENT NEWS.
We hope you enjoy the long weekend.
Our first story today is about infrastructure , the fundamental systems that service city, state or country.
So, things like power plants, roads and bridges.
Part of this bridge in Washington State collapsed last week when a tractor trailer with an oversized load hit an overhead part of the bridge.
Several vehicles fell into the water, rescue crews showed up to help the victims, three people were injured.
Officials estimate that it's going to cost $15 million to fix the bridge.
It's part of important shipping route between the U.S. and Canada.
Nearly $14 billion in cargo crosses that bridge every year.
Authorities are hoping to have a temporary bridge up next month, and a permanent bridge up in September.
In other parts of the country, people have been struggling through different forms of severe weather.
In San Antonio, Texas, huge amounts of rain over the weekend led the flash floods.
At least three people were killed, thousands of people lost their power and dozens of streets were closed because of it.
San Antonio's fire chief said that on Saturday, in 15 hours 250 water-related calls came in.
Up in the Northeast it looked more like winter than spring.
This is late May, Vermont seemed to get some of the worst of this.
Up to 7.5 inches of snow fell in some parts of the state, one concern there is about the snowfall weighing down trees and branches.
That can increase the chance of them falling on power lines.
