We believe the structures around us to be safe and properly built, but that is not always the case. Florida sees more building and bridge collapses than most other U.S. states.
Recently, we witnessed one of the most catastrophic building collapses Miami has ever seen. A Condo building—located 8777 Collins Avenue—collapsed early in the morning. Officials have reported:
- 94 people dead,
- 2 people have been pulled from the rubble,
- 35 others have been evacuated, and
- 22 residents have yet to be accounted for.
