On Tuesday, authorities said that around thirty-six people are now marked dead and nearly 109 people still missing at the location of the condo downfall in Surfside, and rescue efforts are still in search of people that could be alive under vandalized material.
On Tuesday morning, the AP (Associated Press) with Daniella Levine (Miami-Dade County Mayor) described that the rescue teams found 4 more bodies under fresh debris on Tuesday. Moreover, twenty-six bodies had been recognized.
The rescuers and official authorities can just confirm seventy people who were present in the condo at the time of downfall. Besides this, dozens of people remained unaccounted for.
A part of the condo (Champlain Towers South) that was not vandalized on 24th June was collapsed on Sunday evening.
Search and rescue teams still looking for more people
The rescue and search teams’ struggles are underway, and regulators of Miami-Dade explained that they will not stop rescuing until every missing person is accounted for.
The rescue and search teams have infrequently dealt with problems, rescue and search struggles had stopped for fifteen hours Thursday over a problem how unstable the rubble mountain that would have been created additional snags in the future, and earlier weekend, workers were delayed due to a fire in the debris.
A large part of the condominium demolished at 01:30 AM on 24th June, a few days after when the owners of the condo were decided to get payments for the repair purpose. The root cause of the forty-years old condo is still ambiguous, but most of the signs showed that its structure wasn’t designed in good shape.
On Thursday, Joe Biden, President of the United States, toured the collapsed building and pledged the federal govt. would entirely manage the cost for the first thirty days of rescue and search activities. Ron DeSantis (Florida Gov.), who normally considered as the major critic of the current administration, praised the federal government’s handling of the condo collapse.
On Thursday, he described that you guys have not only been supportive at the federal level, but they have had no bureaucracy.
Florida Gov Ron DeSantis to Biden:
“Thank you, Mr. President. You recognized the severity of this tragedy from day one. You’ve been very supportive…Cooperation has been great…You guys have not only been supportive at the federal level, but we’ve had no bureaucracy.”#sunrise pic.twitter.com/CMNW5U8DQV
