The building collapsed last Thursday.

As the days pass and rescue work continues on the partially collapsed building in Miami, questions about how a 12-story building could collapse in a matter of 11 seconds multiply.

And also, new evidence and details are beginning to appear that will help experts determine the causes over time.

Since last weekend, the United States media have published documents that report a notable deterioration at the Champlain Tower South facilities.

It is the case of a letter sent in April past to the apartment owners in which it was alerted that the “deterioration of the concrete” was “accelerating” and that the damage “would begin to multiply exponentially”.
