Condolences to those involved in Miami Building collapse

Quote:
A 12-storey oceanfront apartment block in Florida has partially collapsed, killing at least one person, with dozens of rescuers combing the rubble for survivors.

Miami Beach Police Department said its officers were "assisting the Town of Surfside at a partial building collapse"

Nearly 100 people were still unaccounted for, authorities said, raising fears the death toll could climb sharply.

Condolences to family and friends of those affected by the building collapse in Miami.

These sort of things are not something normally expected in the USA, something tragic has obviously occurred. I have read of such events in the middle east, India and South East Asia, where standards are perhaps lax, but it's not something expected in Western countries.

Here in Australia, in Sydney, in recent times two high-rise residential towers have been evacuated and closed due to large cracks in the structure. Engineers are still investigating.

Again condolences to those caught up in the latest tragedy.
