Real bad condo collapse in Surfside, FL
quote:

A massive search and rescue effort was underway following the partial collapse of a 12-story condominium building in Surfside early Thursday.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said more than 80 units responded to the collapse at the condominium building near 88th Street and Collins Avenue just north of Miami Beach around 2 a.m.

The county's Technical Rescue Team was being assisted by municipal fire departments in searching the scene for survivors, officials said.

"Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is on scene, they're conducting rescues as we speak," Surfside Police Sgt. Marian Cruz said. "It's a very active scene, I advise everyone to just stay out of the area so that fire rescue and officers can conduct rescues and do what we need to do."

Records showed the 12-story building was built in 1981 and has more than 130 units.

Ok, so just how does a 40 year old 12 story building collapse?

Not sure about the construction technique but rebar corrosion is the first thing I thought of.

Corrosion from the salty environment is my first thought as well

I hope they don’t consult with NOLA for guidance on how to handle the emergency response.

it is correct that one is confirmed dead but be careful with following scanner info. Most times those aren't exactly accurate.

Thanks. This absolutely needed clarification because I'm sure everyone here thought I was being literal.
