One bridge is in imminent danger of collapsing and it could be days or weeks before other losses in Placer County are added up as the Storm of the Decade continues today.

Placer County authorities said today that the vehicle bridge at Godley Road and Julietta Place, east of Lincoln, is in danger of "imminent failure" and closed.

Meanwhile, the storm continues to test other bridges and infrastructure in the region, seeking out weak points that could cause further flooding or other dangers.

Watch a video here showing bridges at the American River confluence taking a beating near Auburn from debris and water.
