  1. Alguien que me explique como van a rescatar después de la implosion?
    Si alguien estaba aún vivo, con la implosion los acaban de matar

    1. You do relize there is a high advisery of STRONG winds coming in from the South right???

    2. Precisamente por eso se llama demolición controlada, se planea la caida de escombros en una área específica para evitar que caigan por todas partes, sobretodo encima de los escombros donde están las víctimas de la parte del edificio colapsada previamente.

    3. @Barbara Danko I do . My only concern was the fact that the mayor said they will continue the rescue after the implosion and Couldn’t get the logic around that decision in which someone here just explain to me how it was going to be done .

  2. Simple…just like the USA infrastructure the condo was badly maintained even though had a high maintenance fee like $900 + monthly for a 2 bedroom unit. Welcome to the USA… all for the appearance nothing for the content.

    1. I’m studying civil engineering and I’m a member of American Society of Civil Engineers and our infrastructure grade across the US is a C- LMAO

    2. The condos were alot more than that… try 1,500 a month Not including electricity or Hoa.

    3. @Pinkie Love nope…I am in the area working with real estate for over 20 years. 8855 Collins Ave # 3F Maintenance was $956, 2/2 sold June 18- 2021. Even for an extremely large 3 bedroom 2.5 bath at 2,300 SqFt was only 1,300 monthly. Some newer building have well above $1500 in the area. This collapse is something that make not much sense.

    4. @Nicholas lol…Coliseum had no sheetrock walls screwed on wood studs with air-conditioned air collecting humidity. Steel re-enforced concrete that is cold inside warm outside and collect all the humidity and self-destruct. I grew up in Europe in a 400 years old mud brick house. A construction that is used for thousands of years.

  3. South Florida is full of overpriced and old buildings, in my neighborhood I see posts all the time on the “neighbors” app of people complaining about the explosives being used for underground mineing every week and people complaining that their houses are shaking and houses are getting cracks.

    1. I’m interested to know what type of underground mining is happening in a place so close to sea level?

    2. @Lana Love They do construction materials mining, basically they blast the ground underground for materials to make concrete.

    3. Florida geography is lime stone and very porous with underground waterways. Thats why Florida is prone to sink holes. If there is any blasting it has to be for Quarry’s to dig up limestone for building materials…no underground mining.

    4. @Judith Miller The mines also show up on Google Earth if you wanna see where their located in Florida.

    5. @WiseSilverWolf yes that’s what Quarrys are, they are a surface mines but they’re not underground.

  4. Can anyone Rationally explain why so many are critical in fact suspicious of the officials intentions that are in charge of this rescue and recovery operation as well as the demolition process. I just don’t understand as I’ve been following this horrific tragic catastrophe closely and they seem to only have good intentions doing the best they possible can for the families victims and citizens alike under completely devastating circumstances.

  5. First of all, this is a terrible tragedy and I am praying for the first responders and those who have lost loved ones and belongings. It’s very sad.

    On a more woke note, did she just say “sheroes?”

    I get it that you’re trying to be inclusive and sensitive, but “heroes” is a noun, not a pronoun. Are we going to add other words like “shepatitis,” “shesitant,” “shexagon,” and “shelicopter” to this woke, inclusive dictionary?

  6. I’m praying for the families that have been affected by this tragedy. I’m so sorry for their losses

  7. Publish a list of the missing and presumed buried people. IF by any chance you are not dead, please let us know.

    1. Just a heads up I think you mean poorly. Pourly is a type of french cheese made from goats milk.

  8. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  9. Land on the shore is very expensive. Hard to get knocked down and rehouse everyone. Hard to get permission to change the picture of shore line. This was about politics of the big real estate ballers. They left the structure rotting for a reason…. They wanted another Grenfell. They didn’t want the building there anymore. I can only think of one other old building that went down on the shoreline and that was the twin towers.

  10. why do they insist on having “everyone and their mother” standing behind the speaker.. very distracting

  11. In 400 single shootings a day, 150 people were killed. In addition, more than 100 people were trapped when the building collapsed, but the building on the other side was blown up! ? What country is this! ? ?
