Part of the roof of a three-story building collapsed in USA on the afternoon of last Thursday, 15. The incident happened in Miami-Dade, next to Surfside — where a building collapsed 22 days ago and left about 150 people missing. This time, the fall was part of the porch roof of a three-story building, which has about 12 apartments. Despite the scare, no one was hurt. The entire building was evacuated and residents were relocated to hotels in the area. According to the local mayor, Daniella Levine Cava, and the head of the Fire Department, the reason for the partial collapse is still unknown. The building is about 40 years old and has recently undergone a rigorous inspection that is mandatory in older properties. In the collapse that took place at the end of June, in Surfside, 97 victims have already been located and 92 of them have already been identified.
