Collapsed Florida condo building likely to be demolished – Tampa, Florida

Tampa, Florida 2021-07-02 02:34:30 –

Florida officials are working on a plan to demolish the remnants of a partially collapsed oceanfront condominium building.

The plan was revealed Thursday after concerns about structural instability stopped the search for survivors for 15 hours.

After rescue operations resumed Thursday evening, authorities said they had begun planning on the possibility of demolishing the remaining structures.

Scott Nashman, a FEMA structure specialist, said engineers are exploring different methods for demolition.

He said rescue operations would be delayed at first if the building collapsed.

However, he said demolition of structures creates a safer working environment that can allow more personnel in the field and accelerate the pace of work.
