Last week in Surfside, Florida, a town near Miami, a large condominium building collapsed in the middle of the night. About fifty-five of the building’s 136 units collapsed within a matter of seconds. To date, 97 have been confirmed dead as we approach the end of the search.
The twelve-story Champlain Towers South building was built sometime in the early 1980s. Because of climate conditions in the area, buildings over forty years old are required to undergo a recertification process to identify any structural or electrical issues. Exposure to salt air is corrosive to concrete and is a known problem, and hurricane winds and saltwater flooding add additional stress.
