Collapse of Miami building: Date of demolition

After the collapse of the 12-storied building on 24 June, the death toll increased to 24.

A nearby tropical storm has brought forward the demolition of the standing portion of the apartment building that has collapsed near Miami.
Within days it will destroy the right part of Champlain Towers South, officials say, so that rescuers can search the site safely.

After the collapse of the 12-storied building on 24 June, the death toll increased to 24.

For structural defects, officials investigate other tower blocks.
On Saturday, the next demolition would “protect our teams to search and rescue,” said Florida Gouverneur Ron DeSantis.

He added: “If it might fall over, we don’t know. This would create a genuine danger

Mayor Daniella Cava Levine, Miami-Dade County signed on Friday the Demolition Order on. Initially, she stated that she did not expect demolition until late July.

Surf Mayor Charles Burkett said the fear was that the storm would knock down the remainder of the building and drop waste in the survivors’ zone.


“The construction is obviously a problem and the only way is to get rid of it,” he said.


Mrs. Cava Levine said that the families were told about the decision and “understand it.” They were still missing. Since the first hours after the collapse, none was found alive.

No details on the compensation of the owner are available.

The body of his very seven-year-old daughter was taken from the scrap block by a firefighter on Friday. On Friday, he had been on the site for nine days and was there when she was taken out.


The third child to be recovered from the surfside site in the Miami suburb is Stella Cattarossi.


According to the report, she visited Argentina with her mother, grandparents, and aunt.


No survivors have been found since the first few hours after the building collapsed

The residents of a new block were also told on Friday to leave for safety – the first building in the area to be placed in this order after the collapse.

The North Miami Beach Building Department ordered Crestview Towers Condominium residents to evacuate.


It remains unclear what caused the 40-year-old Champlain South Towers to collapse. A survey in 2018 warned that the original design had “major” design flaws.
