Champlain Towers South was completed in 1981. When it collapsed it was going through a recertification process for 40-year-old buildings, in accordance with city safety regulations, reports have suggested.

Sputnik is live from Miami Beach, Florida, where emergency services continue rescue operations after part of a 12-storey residential building collapsed in the Surfside area of the city. At least five people were reported dead, while 156 are still missing.
