Morandi’s technology

It finally happened.  Morandi’s bridge in Genoa, Italy, finally collapsed.  Yahoo! Engegniri USA Today  Mr. Bohnert, our instructor, was correct.  Poor design, materials, & construction: people die.  This bridge was build in the 1960s and was plagued from the start with its proven unreliable technology.  Is its use of pre-stressed steel and reinforced concrete to blame?  When a storm came, with heavy rain and lightning, the thing collapsed.
