Hundreds of Miami apartment building residents were forced from their homes Monday night after city inspectors determined the building posed a safety risk.
Last month, the building received a notice stating that the certificates were not up to date.
An inspection at the end of July showed that many of the support columns on the first floor of the building were in need of emergency repairs.
The garage was also to be indicted because it was considered dangerous.
Last week, the City of Miami received a letter from a building engineer claiming that the building was not safe enough to inhabit during emergency repairs.
According to the city, the plan for the repair work was never presented.
At this point, an inspector requested a halt to work and a further evaluation by an engineer.
He came to the conclusion that the columns were “structurally insufficient”.
So the building was immediately evacuated.
The city of Miami is currently trying to move all of the evacuees.
This incident is reminiscent of the Surfside Incident, where an apartment building collapsed last July, killing nearly 100 people, and many more missing.
The authorities searched the rubble for several days in search of survivors.
