Tunneling Florida rescuers spot voids, search for survivors

Before building collapse, $9M+ in repairs needed

Excerpt from The Washington Post:

Miami-Dade Fire Chief Alan Cominsky said he could not yet say when the search-and-rescue effort might shift to a recovery effort.

“Hope — that’s what I’m focusing on,” the fire chief said at Sunday’s news conference. “So I’m going to continue that as much as possible. That’s the driving message.”

He added: “We’re going to continue moving and moving and searching as hard as we can, for as long as we can, until we have to make that decision.”

He stressed that the type of building collapse that occurred in Surfside is a challenge and praised the level of support the teams are receiving.

“We’ll continue moving through and doing what we’re doing, and, you know, obviously trying the best that we can,” Cominsky said.
