With tropical storm Elsa close at hand, authorities fear the weather phenomenon will tip the structure in the wrong direction; search operations were suspended this Saturday
The part that is still standing of the building that collapsed last week in Miami, in Florida, in the USA, will be demolished. With tropical storm Elsa approaching the region, authorities decided to speed up the process. The local government fears that the weather phenomenon will bring down the already fragile structure in the wrong direction. Demolition of the part that is still standing should allow rescuers to work without the threat of a second collapse. The expectation is that it will be possible to access a folder from the debris pile that has not yet been reached by the Fire Department. Local residents will not be able to return to the structure to retrieve personal objects. Search operations were suspended this Saturday afternoon, 3, to prepare the site. Federal investigators try to preserve evidence before the demolition.
