A huge crane has arrived at the collapsed Francis Scott Key Bridge to start and remove the debris of bridge sections that are in the water and blocking ships in and out of the port. Maryland Governor Wes Moore said Thursday that recovering the missing workers and bringing closure to their families remained a top priority. He also confirmed the Biden-Harris administration had approved his state’s emergency funds request on Thursday, hours after it was submitted— an extraordinarily quick relief payout after such a disaster. Maryland officials said the emergency funds would support “laying the foundation for a rapid recovery" and that the state may seek more funds if needed. Federal officials have reportedly told Maryland lawmakers the final price tag for a new bridge could be much higher than the $60 million approved Thursday — at least $2 billion — but that funding to build a replacement bridge must be approved by the U.S. Congress. Moore said there was a quote "long road ahead" to rebuild the bridge. - Contents of video: - 00:00 - Crane arrives at collapsed bridge 03:38 - $60million relief funds approved END READ MORE: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/12354388/maryland-francis-scott-key-bridge-collapses/ Become a Scottish Sun Subscriber and hit the bell to be the first to know Read The Scottish Sun: http://www.theScottishsun.co.uk Like The Sun on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thescottishsun/ Follow The Sun on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ScottishSun #baltimoreBridge #baltimore #bridgecollapse
