In an 11:20 a.m. news conference near the scene, New Orleans Fire Department Superintendent Tim McConnell said the upper six to eight floors of the structure collapsed and that the building remains very unstable.

"It's a very unsafe situation", Fire Superintendent Timothy McConnell said, adding that the building is "unstable", and another collapse is possible. Authorities said no one on the ground was injured in the collapse.

The Hard Rock Hotel was expected to open in the spring and was to be an 18-story building with 350 rooms.

As reported by nola.com, an eyewitness said: "It was a deep, rumbling sound, like an airplane maybe".

At least one person is dead and several people are unaccounted for, according to Louisiana State Governor John Bel Edwards.
