      SURFSIDE, Fla. (AP) — The sea-view side of a beachfront condo tower collapsed in the Miami-area town of Surfside early Thursday, drawing a massing response from emergency services.

      Miami Dade Fire Rescue was conducting search and rescue operations, and said in a tweet that more than 80 units were “on scene with assistance from municipal fire departments.”

      Authorities had no word yet on casualties or details of how many people lived in the building.

      “We’re on the scene so it’s still very active,” said Sgt. Marian Cruz of the Surfside Police Department. “What I can tell you is the building is twelve floors. The entire back side of the building has collapsed.”

      Just perusing “surfside collapse” results.    Evidently the building was being remodeled.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      No hurricane, no earthquake, just shoddy workmanship? Are we officially a third world nation yet?
