Corps sends team to Fort Irwin to assess monsoon damage

Tony Wong, a structural engineer, and Jose Rocha, a civil engineer, inspect Bridge 13, located on Outer Loop Road for damage and further use at Fort Irwin, Calif., Aug. 29, 2013. The Los Angeles District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, deployed a five-man team to conduct initial damage assessments after a monsoon struck the base. The raging waters and debris flow from the monsoonal rainfall eroded the soil and concrete around the bridges' support columns. The bridge has been closed pending further analysis of the damage.
