A massive rescue operation is underway in Surfside, Florida, near Miami Beach following the partial collapse of a 12-story apartment building early Thursday.

At least eight people have reportedly been hospitalized. At the time of this writing, it’s unclear if anyone has been killed.

Images from the scene showed large sections of the 136-unit oceanside Champlain Towers South, which was reportedly built in 1981, in rubble on the ground.

A young boy was pulled alive from the debris in one video:

According to local news outlets, emergency crews continue to rescue people from balconies and search through the rubble for survivors.

Local residents have been moved to a nearby community center, reported NBC Miami, with surrounding roads shuttered by police.

Buildings collapsing, raggedy roads, unsafe bridges,  people taking dumps inside the U.S. Capitol Building, a political party that believes it is ok for elected officials to overturn an election. America is looking more and more like a third world country.  :no:

So far, 1 death has been confirmed.



At least one person was killed and several others injured when a 12-story apartment building in Miami partially collapsed early Thursday, prompting a massive search-and-rescue effort — with one boy seen being pulled out alive from the rubble.

An educated public wouldn't be falling for the stupidity of the GOP.  Guess which party doesn't want an educated voter?

CNN just showed video of the collapse.  It's much worse than I thought. WoW

Well that doesn’t sound good for the other nearby buildings

CD, most of the Miami area is built on swampland. Back in the early 2000s, during a 3 day rain period, it poured 18 inches of water flooding most of Miami-Dade County. People complained mightily about the lack of drainage. A Miami-Dade engineer told them that "Miami-Dade had the best drainage system a swamp could ever have."

I remember that event because I had to attend a meeting in Coral Gables that Monday night and the freeways were jammed. I took the city streets, and there were streets I drove down where the water came up to the headlights of my truck. Luckily I drove the truck that night. :o
