Florida Lt. Gov. gives update on Miami building collapse
Fifty one people are reportedly unaccounted for after a Miami condo collapsed in Surfside, FL. Jeanette Nunez, the lieutenant governor of Florida., provides updates.
A condominium collapse in Surfside, Florida, on Thursday morning has left many wondering what caused the massive implosion, which has so far killed one person and left 99 people unaccounted for.
Miami-Dade County authorities are currently conducting an investigation into the Champlain Towers South Condo collapse, though an official cause behind the devastation has yet to be determined.

An area expert has brought forward some ideas as to what could have led the building's facade to crumble to the ground.
Gary Slossberg, founder of the South Florida construction company National Home Building & Remodeling Corp, said he hasn't heard any specific leads as to the cause of the building's fall, but after decades working in the industry, he has his suspicions.
"In a general way, there are many things that could happen. Construction defects or engineering defects," he said, adding that he's not suggesting there were any construction or engineering defects but simply pointing out the possibility. "I think there is some value, and it makes some sense to do periodic inspections."
