12-story apartment building in Miami, Florida collapses

It was unclear how many people lived in the building or who had been inside at the time.

The oceanfront condominium, which was built in the 1980s, has over 100 apartment units and was believed to be substantially full when a third of it collapsed in the early morning hours, according to Burkett.

At least one person has been confirmed dead, Surfside mayor Charles Burkett told NBC's Today show.

Officials at nearby Aventura Hospital said they had received three patients from the scene, NBC6 reported.

In a separate news release, it said more than 80 rescue units were at the location, including Technical Rescue Teams, along with assistance from municipal fire departments. Two were in critical condition. "Look at the building, it's gone".

Khamenei also served as president when he took over in 1989 from the Islamic republic's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Iran has never acknowledged the mass executions, and Raisi himself has never publicly addressed allegations about his role.

Search and rescue efforts continue after a condo tower partially collapsed overnight in the town of Surfside, Fla., just north of Miami Beach. "What I can tell you is the building is twelve floors". About 80 rescue units responded to the scene.

The department has not yet said what may have caused the collapse near 88th St and Collins Ave.

"May they stay safe while working to save lives", Levine Cava said.

"Multiple police and fire agencies from across Miami-Dade are assisting", the force added.
