as far as the building collapse, I have family working the pile, it was just a very poorly maintained building. Also, for some unknown reason, roof work was started that week and they drilled and mounted many posts for that job. Some engineers, sisters hubby included, feel the drilling and jack hammering caused the beams to just give out once the building cooled off that night. The deck collapsed, dropping a planter into one beam and so on...

Most of the cocaine era construction was done quickly and with as many short cuts as possible because it was all being paid for in CASH. Watch cocaine cowboys for context, i suppose. There are numerous videos online by engineers who have been looking at many videos taken before the building fell. Turns out the garage had salt water intrusions multiple times, sometimes feet at a time. Many other buildings are in even worse shape. If you buy in Florida, you better buy something built after 1996, trust me...

Interesting. Why 1996?

they changed the building codes after Andrew in 92 but most of the contractors prolly did not use those new codes until 1996 or so, give or take..

Just my experience though
