Galloping Gertie is the reference used to describe the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. It opened on July 1, 1940 four months later it no longer existed. On November 7, 1940 the wind gusts came up to 40 miles an hour causing the bridge to twist and vibrate violently before it collapsed into Puget Sound. The only victim of the bridge collapsing was a three-legged paralyzed dog named Tubby whose owner tried to rescue him from the car but he wouldn’t go with him.

Name Meaning

English (mainly Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from any of various places called Eastwood, such as in Keighley, Rotherham, or Todmorden (all Yorkshire), or Eastwood in Nottinghamshire. Most of these placenames come from Old English ēast ‘east’ + wudu ‘wood’, but Eastwood in Nottinghamshire originally had as its final element Old Norse thveit ‘clearing’ (see Thwaites ). Compare Astwood .

English (Devon): from Eastwood in Peters Marland or Inwardleigh (both Devon), named with Middle English bi este wode ‘(place) to the east of the wood’.

Probably also an Americanized form (translation into English) of Dutch Oostwoud: habitational name from the village Oostwoud in the province of North Holland.
