The building had been sinking at a rate of about 2 millimetres a year in the 1990s, according to a study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor at Florida International University in 2020.

  1. If this forty year old building in Florida was sinking for years why measures were not taken to vacate the building and all buildings similar as they could be in the same danger or do you wait until someone get injured or lose their life first ?

    Florida is around lots of water is it safe to build tall building ? Observing the last part of the building on the right side that collapse it came crumbling down as if it had inside explosives. Sinking tall buildings are in lots of trouble if they come down that easily.
