    A somber moment of silence marked the end of the two-week search for survivors of a Florida condominium collapse, as rescue workers stood at solemn attention and clergy members hugged a line of local officials while many of them sobbed.

    The painstaking search for survivors shifted to a recovery effort at midnight Wednesday after authorities said they had come to the agonizing conclusion that there was “no chance of life” in the rubble of the Champlain Towers South condo building in Surfside.

    When the decision was made to transition to recovery mode, “It took a little piece of the hearts of this community,” U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said at a news conference Thursday.

    The death toll stood at 60 Thursday morning, Miami Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said Thursday. Officials said 80 people were unaccounted for, although detectives were still working to verify that each of those listed as missing was actually in the building when it collapsed.

    Rescuers had spent two weeks digging through the rubble, searching in vain for any sign of life, Levine Cava said.
