Title: Washed Out Bridge, Snake Creek Near Whitesburg
Description: Tributary to Snake Creek, near Whitesburg, Georgia, showing a washed out bridge. When bridges such as this one collapse during a flood, it is rarely the pressure of the rushing water against the bridge that causes the bridge to fail. Rather, the rushing water erodes the ground underneath and surrounding the structure that supports the bridge causing the bridge to collapse. Site is 02337500 SNAKE CREEK NEAR WHITESBURG, GA. Carroll County.
