    Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Fire Rescue Chief Alan Cominsky and other officials provided an update on Thursday regarding the Surfside, Fla., condo collapse search and rescue mission, after it was suspended in the early morning hours due to concerns about the stability of the remaining structure.

    “We’re doing everything we can to ensure that the safety of our first responders is paramount, and to continue our search and rescue operation as soon as it is safe to do so,” she stated.

    Levine Cava also commented on U.S. President Joe Biden’s expected visit to the site, saying that it would have “no impact” on the search and rescue mission.

    Search crews going through the ruins found the remains of six people Wednesday, bringing the number of confirmed dead to 18. The number of residents unaccounted for stands at 145.
