The Miami community has rallied to respond to the deadly collapse of a condominium building, the archbishop of Miami told CNA on Monday.
“Everybody is coming together and cooperating, in a very difficult time,” Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami told CNA several days after part of a beachfront condominium building in Surfside, Florida collapsed last Thursday, June 24.
“This is an example that God can bring good out of something that’s very evil, very difficult,” he said.
Early morning on June 24, part of the 12-story Champlain Towers condominium complex collapsed; of the 136 condo units in the building, more than 70 were reported destroyed or damaged. Since then, 11 people have been confirmed dead, and 150 people remain unaccounted for.
