佛罗里达倒塌公寓的其余部分将被拆除,死亡人数上升至24人

2021-7-4 16:57


华盛顿,7月3日(新华社)——上周部分倒塌的佛罗里达Surfside公寓的剩余部分最早将于周日被拆除,当地消防官员周六表示,灾难造成的死亡人数已上升到24人。


迈阿密-戴德消防救援助理消防队长Raide Jadallah在上午的新闻发布会上告诉受影响的家庭,尚普兰南塔的其余部分将被“尽快”拆除。明天第一件事。”


他补充说,该计划还有待进一步讨论,下午将举行后续会议,确定拆除的细节。


在新闻发布会上,迈阿密戴德市市长卡瓦说,在废墟中又发现了两名遇难者,使死亡人数上升到24人,还有124人下落不明。


佛罗里达州州长罗恩·德桑蒂斯(Ron DeSantis)表示,热带风暴艾尔莎(Elsa)预计将抵达佛罗里达州南部,因此有必要拆除仍屹立在那里的建筑物。


他说:“如果这座建筑被拆除,这将保护我们的搜救队,因为我们不知道它什么时候会倒塌,当然,在这种大风的影响下,它可能会造成非常严重的危险。”


德桑提斯补充说,他被告知拆除工作可以在36小时内完成,因此对搜救队来说将会有“最小程度的工作中断”。


由于担心大楼的其他部分可能倒塌,周四大部分时间的搜救行动都暂停了。


美国国家飓风中心(NHC)在上午11点发布的预警中称,埃尔莎在周五是一级飓风,但在周六上午晚些时候降级为热带风暴,持续风速为每小时70英里(110公里每小时)。现在它正在袭击加勒比海的岛屿。


国家飓风中心预计,埃尔莎的降雨“下周初可能会影响佛罗里达群岛和佛罗里达南部的部分地区。”


瑟夫赛德市长查尔斯·伯克特(Charles Burkett)在新闻发布会上说:“我们担心的是,飓风可能会把这栋建筑拖到错误的方向,压在遇难者所在的那堆建筑上。”他还说,“最早明天”就会进行拆除工作。

WASHINGTON, July 3 (Xinhua) -- The remainder of the condominium in Surfside, Florida, that partially collapsed last week will be demolished as soon as Sunday, a local fire official said Saturday as the death toll from the disaster rose to 24.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Assistant Fire Chief Raide Jadallah told affected families during a morning news conference that the remaining part of the Champlain Towers South would be brought down "as soon as possible. First thing tomorrow."

He added that the plan is contingent upon further discussions, as a follow-up meeting will be held in the afternoon to finalize details of the demolition.

Also during the briefing, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said two more victims were found in the rubble, bringing the death toll to 24 while there are 124 people who remain unaccounted for.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said Tropical Storm Elsa's expected arrival in South Florida has made the demolition of the still-standing part of the building necessary.

"If the building is taken down, this will protect our search and rescue teams because we don't know when it could fall over, and of course, with these gusts, potentially, that would create a really severe hazard," he said.

DeSantis added that he was told that the demolition could be done within 36 hours, so there would be "minimal work stoppage" for search and rescue teams.

Fears that the remainder of the building may tumble prompted a halt of the search and rescue operations for most of Thursday.

Elsa was Category 1 hurricane on Friday, but was downgraded to tropical storm late Saturday morning with sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km per hour), the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an 11:00 a.m. advisory. It is now battering islands in the Caribbean.

The NHC now expects rainfall from Elsa "likely to impact portions of the Florida Keys and southern Florida early next week."

"The fear was that the hurricane may take down the building for us, and take it down in the wrong direction, on top of the pile where we have victims," said Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett during the briefing, adding the demolition could be carried out "as early as tomorrow."
