This is awful.

This what appears to have collapsed from the phots seen online. Daylight will probably give us a more complete view of the disaster.

Miami Dade Fire Rescue has over 100 units responding.

Dear God, let the building be empty for renovations.

  1. Being a professional in the design and construction industry with some relevant experience, my money is on poor engineering & construction.

      1. The Video is gone, but you can see where the section nearest the still standing buiding collapsed almost straight down. That means the supports at ground level stopped supporting that section. Then after it collapsed, the still standing narrow section of beach side building fell over into collapsed area several seconds later.

        It looked a lot like a controlled implosion performed with explosives. You take out the lowest supports and let gravity do the work of breaking the building up. When the center section fell, the beach side section had no support, and it fell on top of the collapsed area. (NO I DO NOT THINK EXPLOSIVS WERE USED!!!!) The ground under the supports stopped supporting them. Sinkhole? Erosion? Subsidence? It may have happened slowly over weeks? The stresses built up, one section of support at the ground level failed, and a domino effect took over.

        Yes it looked like a controlled implosion because the pillars on the ground level stopped supporting the building, which is what the demolition engineers try to make happen when they do the job.

        Rest in Peace.

  2. get used to it… This is what happens when we insist of ‘woke math’ where 2+2=5 It’s gonna get worse folks.

  3. Damn liberals. Inventing woke math in the 21st century then travelling back in time to 1981 and using it to architect a building that will collapse 40 years later. THEY MUST BE STOPPED!! Wokeness will destroy everything we love and hold dear!

  4. You should be like Europe, and by the way, the khmervertdom gonna invade ur sassy country. Paz on you notwithstanding.
