Building partially collapses near Miami Beach, rescues underway

One person was killed and at least 10 others injured when a 12-story apartment building in Miami partially collapsed early Thursday, prompting a massive search-and-rescue effort. The ocean-facing portion of the 136-unit Champlain Towers South Condo on Collins Avenue in Surfside collapsed about 1:30 a.m., leaving a mountain of rubble and trapping residents asleep in their beds inside.

They skimped on the concrete testing or whoever originally did it misread the rolometer and improperly preformed the other tests and math. The rolometer is basically never used in the field when we get tested 85 percent of people fail the test the first time. It is only used for lightweight concrete which is what high rise buildings are made with.

That is a shame that people not involved in shoddy construction pay the price for it with their lives & health.

Could have something to do with the building off all the flood defenses around miami. All the digging can affect ground water levels which could weaken the foundation.
