By KMVT Staff

Seattle, Washington ( KING ) Strong winds forced the closure of the 520 floating bridge near Seattle Saturday morning.

If you look closely, you can see it swaying back and forth underneath the police cruisers.

It got so dangerous, authorities told drivers to abandon their cars and get off the bridge.

Hours later, the winds died down enough to let cars back through.

According to KING TV, the last time the S.R. 520 bridge was closed for wind and waves was December of 2006.
