Miami: Part of the roof of a building collapsed, and authorities evicted its occupants.

A group of experts is on-site to investigate what happened. No injuries or fatalities are reported.

According to an engineering firm, half a dozen lawsuits have been filed against the Commodium Association, with at least structural concerns since 2018.

A building in Miami was evacuated Thursday afternoon after the roof of the structure collapsed. City authorities reported no injuries or fatalities.

At around 4 p.m., Miami-Dade police received calls about the collapse of the building located at 17500 NW 68th Avenue. Rescue teams and city authorities are on the scene to investigate why part of the roof collapsed.

After the tragedy of the collapsed building in Surfside, where 97 died and dozens more are still missing, authorities in Miami are on high alert to avoid other disasters.

On July 4, an apartment building in Miami Beach was evacuated after structural problems were found.

Meanwhile, investigations into the cause of the collapse of the northeast wing of the Champlain Towers South building, which houses 55 apartments, have begun but are expected to be more complex.

According to an engineering firm, half a dozen lawsuits have been filed against the Commodium Association, with at least structural concerns since 2018.

The rest of the building was demolished on July 4, as its structure was unstable and search operations were made difficult.

This Wednesday, a judge in South Florida allowed the sale of land where a residential building collapsed, and according to provisional figures, 97 people lost their lives.

In a judicial proceeding held yesterday, Judge Michael Hanzman gave the green light to the sale of the property where the Champlain Towers South was built, which could reach a price between 100 and 110 million dollars.

The judge intends to speed up selling the land to benefit the victims of the collapse as soon as possible and as much as possible.

The mayor of Surfside, Charles Burkett, said last week that he was studying what use to give the site and consulting with the victims' families to find out what they want, as it is a kind of "sacred place."
