Residents of Miami Beach home evacuated due to risk of collapse

Local authorities are evacuating residents from a house in Miami Beach, Florida, because of the poor condition of the concrete structures, which threatens the collapse of the building. About this on Tuesday, July 13, reports NBC.

According to TV channel, engineers conducted an inspection in an apartment house, built in 1939, and revealed deterioration of the concrete.

It is noted that the house was the fourth building in the county to have been evacuated since the apartment building collapsed. Now 14 people remain in the house and have been ordered to leave the building by the end of the week.

Local authorities in late June ordered an inspection of all buildings in the county that are approaching 40 years old, which should be completed by the end of July.

The collapse of a 12-story apartment building in American Surfside happened on the night of June 24. Causes of the incident are being established. On the next day President Joe Biden signed an order declaring a state of emergency in Florida.

On the first day 37 people were pulled out from under the rubble, but after that no survivors were found. Thirteen days after the emergency situation, the authorities decided to stop the rescue operation and are now searching for the bodies of the dead on the spot. According to the latest figures, the death toll has reached 86.
