      FAILING Joe Biden’s open borders allowed ChiCom secret agents in through Mexico to false flag attack the REAL AMERICAN ship carrying the PATRIOT JUICE at the direction of the wink Globalists wink!

      Also, I think this reflects really poorly on the governor as well. Forcing his personal opinion onto the entire state clearly caused this.

    Well, I’m glad it wasn’t the main bridge for Galveston island, that would’ve been all kinds of bad

    In an online statement, Texas A&M University at Galveston said: “The Pelican Island Bridge is closed to all traffic at this time due to a barge strike. Electricity has been restored and additional updates will be provided as the situation unfolds.

    Do they mean electricity was restored to the barge? Was this another crash caused by a power loss?

      Considering it’s a statement issued by the university, I’m going to say that electricity was restored to the university. I can’t imagine them making a statement about the condition of the barge…

          You’re not at fault in your assumption. They were talking about the barge in one sentence, and then electricity being restored in the following sentence. They should have clarified in the latter sentence the subject to which the electricity was restored; eg “electricity was restored to the University….” It’s ironic that an institute of higher learning used such bad grammar.
