What's the REAL State of Emergency Here????

A tanker truck crashes. The ensuing inferno produced flames that melted the two bridge over passes and shut down a major highway ... Thousands upon thousands of commuters are suddenly left with grid lock because the highway is closed until further notice ...

The Governor arrives and declares a state of emergency. He cites the over 80 000 cars that pass by this point everyday as motivation for declaring a state of emergency to speed up the rebuilding process ...

What I don't get is this:

What is the REAL state of emergency here??
A bridge burned beyond recognition??
80 000 commuters inconvenienced by the missing bridge???
A society that doesn't see anything wrong with 80 000 commuters on a highway to begin with??

I guess it's all we can expect from a guy who drives multiple Hummers:

Thanks Arnie ...

(glad to know the truck driver is okay)
