POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENTS CONTINUE OPERATIONS
Miami Dade Fire Rescue was conducting search and rescue operations, and said in a tweet that more than 80 units were “on scene with assistance from municipal fire departments.”
Authorities had no word yet on casualties or details of how many people lived in the building.
“We’re on the scene so it’s still very active,” said Sgt. Marian Cruz of the Surfside Police Department. “What I can tell you is the building is twelve floors. The entire back side of the building has collapsed.”
Police blocked nearby roads, and scores of fire and rescue vehicles, ambulances and police cars swarmed the area.
The collapse sent a cloud of debris through the neighborhood, coating cars up to two blocks away with a light layer of dust.
