Surfside building collapse: Authorities provide update as building is prepped for demolition | LIVE

Global News published this video item, entitled “Surfside building collapse: Authorities provide update as building is prepped for demolition | LIVE” – below is their description.

Authorities in Surfside, Fla. will be providing an update Sunday as crews assess and prep the remaining structure for demolition of the partially collapsed condo complex near Miami Beach.

Rescue crews made way for demolition teams as officials shifted their focus to bringing down the unstable remainder of the structure ahead of Tropical Storm Elsa.

The search and rescue mission was suspended Saturday afternoon so workers could begin the precarious business of boring holes to hold explosives in the concrete of the still-standing portion of the Champlain Towers South tower in Surfside, Miami-Dade Assistant Fire Chief Raide Jadallah told relatives awaiting word on missing loved ones.

Jadallah said the suspension was a necessary safety measure because the drilling could cause the structure to fail. If that were to happen, he said, “It’s just going to collapse without warning.”
