NOT Surfside CA. – This is Surfside FLORIDA!

The fact that this happened in the middle of the night is so sad. Building collapsing is one of my biggest fears. I hope they will be able to find some people still alive 🙏

Ami Stenson June 25, 2021 - 6:53 AM

There will be several people responsible for this devastation. I hope they’re prosecuted and are unable to pay their way out of prison time or any other true consequences!

Dang! It collapsed faster than Trump's Border Wall ☝️😼

My heart goes out to all the poor victims I wonder if a sinkhole opened up due to no earthquake I hope and pray that they continue to find people alive god bless the emergency services

Matt Gaetz will get to the bottom of it.

Lucas Fred June 25, 2021 - 6:57 AM

Keisha Coote June 25, 2021 - 6:57 AM

This whole occurrence is giving me 9/11 energy… God i pray this was accidental💔😞😥

Irene Fehr June 25, 2021 - 6:57 AM

Some report was that the ground has been sinking for a couple of years, so start there

Praying to a god with your hell's angel symbols

The government keep allowing these idiots billionaires and millionaires to get building permits to keep building these sky scrapers and huge buildings. Just like ST Louis Missouri. The politicians know that it's on a fault line and they keep giving them building permits to build. ALL YOU AMERICANS KNOW THAT THE INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE NOT GOING TO PAY OUT. The insurance company already have their lawyers blaming the integrity of the building being unstable due to the equipment that was around it or on top of it. I will never understand why would the Government allow any buildings to be built so high anyway due to sink holes, earthquakes, Vibrations and years of erosions and floods can disturb the foundations of heavy buildings over the years.

Rip

This lawsuit will be legendary I hope all the families get the compensation they deserve. No money can replace a loved one but this is unacceptable. Rest In Peace to those who lost their lives.

yeeter yeets June 25, 2021 - 6:59 AM

That's one way to collect insurance money 💰

D.H. June 25, 2021 - 7:01 AM

God almighty 🙏🏾 That’s terrifying. Praying for more survivors and those lost.

Surge P June 25, 2021 - 7:01 AM

Look at how much of the building collapsed

Possibly a sinkhole?

Giggity King June 25, 2021 - 7:01 AM

Lets pray that the people who survived will find a new home. Preferably a better structured one.

Judy June 25, 2021 - 7:02 AM

Of COURSE there’s more victims! No “prayers” will prevent this! 55 apartments went down. People were sleeping. Plus the relatives, friends & loved ones of those people will NOT be ok about this! This is sickeningly heart breaking. I’m not even involved but I’m sick about this 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 My heart is certainly going out to the survivors, IF I could help I would! 🦋

Steve Smithston June 25, 2021 - 7:02 AM

Sorry for this loss. This, 9-11 and others makes me never want to live in those multi-story buildings.

NaturalRights June 25, 2021 - 7:04 AM

Patricia Grenier June 25, 2021 - 7:07 AM

I am so sorry, I will pray for those poor unknowing people. Did the construction people let greed get the “worst” of them??? So SAD.
