By 19 days after the partial collapse of Champlain Towers South, Levine Cava said that police and medical examiner teams were continuing to work around the clock to identify victims, maar, sy het gese, ‘the process of making identifications has become more difficult as time goes on.’
‘At this step of the recovery process we must rely heavily on the work of the medical examiner’s office,’ verduidelik sy. ‘They are undertaking technical and scientific processes to identify the human remains. The process is very methodical, careful and it does take time.’
Authorities searching for victims of a deadly collapse in Florida said they hope to conclude their painstaking work in the coming weeks, as a team of first responders from Israel departed the site.
Crews continued to search the remaining pile of rubble, peeling layer after layer of debris in search of bodies. The unrelenting search has resulted in the recovery of over 14 million pounds of concrete and debris, Levine Cava said.
Officials announced that the toll from the Miami condo collapse had risen to 94 sterftes, met 83 victims identified Monday morning
The names of 10 additional victims were released Sunday
Miami-Dade Fire Chief Alan Cominsky said it was uncertain when recovery operations would be completed because it remains hard to know when the final body would be found.
When the recovery phase began Wednesday, officials were hoping it could be done within three weeks. In an interview Sunday morning near the site, Cominsky said it might now be as few as two weeks, based on the current pace of work.
‘We were looking at a 14-day to 21-day timeframe,’ hy het gesê, adding that the timeline remained ‘a sliding scale.’
Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett stressed the care that rescue workers are taking in peeling back layers of rubble in hopes of recovering not only bodies but also possessions of the victims. He said the work is so delicate that crews have found unbroken wine bottles amid the rubble.
‘It doesn´t get any less difficult and finding victims, that experience doesn’t change for our search and rescue folks,’ hy het gesê. ‘It takes a toll, but you´ve got to love the heart that they´re putting into this and we´re very grateful.’
Members of the Israeli search and rescue team (prent), whom had come to assist in the efforts headed home Sunday
Saterdagaand, members of the community walked along Collins Avenue, the city’s main thoroughfare, to celebrate the crews that have come from across the country – and as far as Israel and Mexico – to help in the rescue, and now recovery, inspanning.
The Israeli search and rescue team arrived in South Florida shortly after the building collapsed on June 24 and was heading home Sunday.
Members of the crews that have been searching the site 24 hours a day since the collapse lined both sides of the street, shaking hands and bidding farewell to the Israeli team.
The Israeli team joined other task forces from around the United States to assist first responders from Miami and Miami-Dade County, working in 12-hour shifts.
Members of the Israeli crew had been working on site since shortly after the June 24 inval
They have searched through South Florida’s intense summer heat, and in pouring rain, pausing only when lightning was spotted nearby.
They also paused operations as officials made plans to implode the still-standing portion of the condo tower on July 4.
The Israeli team used blueprints of the building to create detailed 3D images of the disaster site to aid in the search.
They also gathered information from families of the missing, many of whom were Jewish, to build a room-by-room model laying out where people would have been sleeping during the pre-dawn collapse.
Levina Cava said the memorial walk on Saturday night was ‘a beautiful moment.’ She gave the keys to the county to the Israeli commander and colonel – her first two handed out as mayor.
Four teams from Florida, Indiana and Pennsylvania are still dedicated to the recovery effort, Cominsky said. Teams from Virginia, New Jersey and Ohio are preparing to leave.
‘To give you an answer when we feel we’ll recover everyone, I can´t give you an exact date,’ the fire chief said. ‘We’re doing everything that we can – everything possible – until we feel that we´ve delayered every floor.’

Vanaf Sondag, ten minste 15 lawsuits have been filed in connection with the condo collapse.
‘Stacie en Jona het verskeie verdiepings onder geland en het wonderbaarlik nog geleef,’ according to the lawsuit.
Rescue crews who responded to the scene pried Jonah out of the rubble using Air Jacks.
‘Jona het geleef, maar met verwoestende beserings,’ according to the court papers. ‘Tragies, his mother was killed.
Volgens die geding, Jona is 'fisies agtergelaat, emosioneel, and psychologically permanently injured.’
The lawsuit accuses the condo association of ignoring a 2018 report by structural engineers who cited widespread damage.

Owners of units in the condo building were just days away from a deadline to start making steep payments toward more than $9 million in major repairs that had been recommended nearly three years earlier.
That cost estimate, from the Morabito Consultants engineering firm in 2018, meant owners at Champlain Towers South were facing payments of anywhere from $80,000 for a one-bedroom unit to $330,000 or so for a penthouse, to be paid all at once or in installments. Their first deadline was July 1.
One resident whose apartment was spared, Adalberto Aguero, had just taken out a loan to cover his $80,000 rekening.
The lawsuit alleges that the condo association is guilty of negligence resulting in wrongful death. It is seeking in excess of $30,000.

Beskryf die oomblik toe hy Jona gewaar, Balboa het gesê dit lyk asof die seun slaap toe die gebou afkom.
‘Daar was 'n bedraam en 'n matras wat bo hom gelê het, so ek kon net aanneem dat dit sy bed was, te oordeel na die grootte van die matras,’ Balboa told Local10 .
'Jy weet, so hy het waarskynlik net geslaap en toe het die gebou ewe skielik meegegee.’
The teen stuck his hand up through the rubble and was spotted amongst the rubble.
‘Hy het gesê: “Please don’t leave me, moenie my verlaat nie, moenie my verlaat nie.” So het ek hom gesê: “We’re right here. Ons sal jou nie verlaat nie.” Dit is toe dat ek polisiebeamptes en brandweermanne probeer beduie om daarheen te kom,’ Balboa gesê.
Video from the scene showed Handler being rescued by fire crews after the Champlain Towers South beachfront building collapsed at about 1.30am on June 24
Nicholas Balboa spoke to CNN about his role in rescuing the child from the collapsed building in Miami
Video from the scene showed the boy being carried out by firefighters on a stretcher after the Champlain Towers South beachfront building collapsed at about 1.30am on Thursday in Miami’s Surfside neighborhood.
Die seun, 'n 10de leerder aan die Monsignor Edward Pace High School in Miami Gardens, is toe met gebreekte bene hospitaal toe geneem.
'Hy het gesê dat sy ma saam met hom in die woonstel was, so ek kon haar nie sien of hoor nie, so ek het geen idee wat haar status was nie, maar ek bid dat sy goed gaan,’ Balboa gesê.
‘Wat hom betref, jy weet, hy is 'n beskermengel. Dit is al wat ek kan sê. Gegewe wat gebeur het, hy kom ongeskonde uit.’
Looking at the rubble, Balboa said he thought of the September 11 attacks and likened the scene opening before his eyes to something ‘out of a horror movie.’
‘I was thinking to myself, ‘How could anyone survive?” hy het gesê.
