NEW DELHI — An eight-story building in Bangladesh that housed several garment factories collapsed on Wednesday morning, killing at least 70 people, injuring hundreds of others, and leaving an unknown number of people trapped in the rubble, according to Bangladeshi officials and media outlets.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/25/world/asia/bangladesh-building-co...

 

So much happening under our feet.  Daily collapses of roadways due to the severe bow stretch, severe rains, crunching and land subduction all predicted in Zetatalk and all happening now.  Last week in Utah a fatal road collapse killed a 14 year old girl and injured 2.  It's painful to watch the planet crumble but we all knew it was coming.

Buildings collapsing.........a daily happening too.  With responses about what's causing all these happenings ranging from, rain, human error, poorly constructed, yada yada.....BUT, that's not going to fly with people much longer.  As soon as Planet X peers out at us from the sky, people will remember all the things that have happened up to this point and finally somehow, they will connect the dots.  Some will be in extreme denial, others will be so afraid and look for someone to take care of them, and still others will stand up and be counted and prepare as best we could.  There's no wishing this away, there's only pushing forward to a better tomorrow.  While our infrastructure crumbles around us we need to learn to be more careful, tread softly, kiss your kids, love with all your heart.  We are IN IT NOW.

I live in a house built in 1850 and it isn't falling down.  Age does not mean collapse. 

100-year-old building partially collapses in Malone

By: Rachael Paradis

A building in Malone that has been standing for more than a century will no longer be a sight in the town. The building on Route 11, well known to many in the community, collapsed overnight. While no one was injured, our Rachael Paradis tells us why the town is in a rush to tear it down.


MALONE, N.Y. -- Neighbors in Malone stood in surprise, took pictures and even shared stories of a once popular tavern that started to crumble early Monday morning.

County Legislator Billy Jones said, "It's an old structure, it was a structure that was obviously unsafe."

The tavern/hotel was built in the early 1900'. It has been closed to the public for about 15 years and was condemned six months ago.

Franklin County Emergency Services Director Rick Provost, "We're unsure what occurred last night at 3 a.m. What we do know is this building has been on our list of buildings with issues."

Jones said, "Old things fall down."

Police closed off part off Route 11 to traffic and to people, out of concern the rest of the building could fall down. Some in the community voiced concern over why this building, along with others like it in the area that haven't already been demolished. Officials say it comes down to money.

Provost said, "The high cost of abatement for these buildings really makes it tough for the county or the village to take those burdens on."

Jones, "We just have to come up with a plan to start taking some of these building down so we don't run into this problem going forward."

The demolition is only expected to take hours, but cleaning up the area is a different issue. Officials say it could be weeks before the site is completely cleared.

 LAKE ELSINORE: Water leak causes street collapse

 

10:00 PM PDT on Friday, July 22, 2011

By GENE GHIOTTO
The Press-Enterprise

Temporary repairs to a section of Joy Street in Lake Elsinore are in place today after a 1-inch water line gave way, causing 80 feet of the roadway to collapse and the asphalt to buckle.

The leak, caused by a 6 to 8-inch diameter tree root, was reported late Thursday in a line that leads to several duplexes on Joy between Machado Street and Riverside Drive, and behind Machado Elementary School.

Water service was restored to the 34 customers early Friday morning, said Greg Morrison, spokesman for the Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District.

Water district and contractor crews spent much of Friday removing the damaged asphalt on the southbound side of Joy and laying down a temporary patch. The road was opened in both directions by late afternoon.

"That way the road will be open completely for the entire weekend," Morrison said.

Crews will return Monday and trench from curb to curb to permanently repair the 1-inch line.

On Tuesday, a paving company will remove the patch, put down new base and repave one side of Joy, Morrison said. Work on the other side will take place on Wednesday.

"That way on Tuesday and Wednesday we'll be able to keep on

Windhorst, Parsons Roadway Collapse: Cautious Testing Continues

County workers are testing for sinkholes but the work is proceeding methodically because of utility lines at the intersection, according to a Hillsborough County spokesman.

Several lanes at the intersection of Windhorst Road and Parsons Avenue in Brandon remained closed for the indefinite future as county workers tread carefully in determining what caused a section of the roadway to collapse July 19.

“We have to be really careful at that intersection because there are lots of utility lines in the area,” said Hillsborough County spokesman Patrick Murray. "We have a sewer line and a water line there and we have to make sure there are no other utilities, so we have to be careful drilling.”

At the scene, late afternoon July 22, barricades were seen at the intersection, with drilling under way.

Crew workers first believed a 16-inch sewage pipeline beneath the intersection might have caused the collapse of the 6-foot-square section of roadway on July 19, according to a county report.

But the sewer line was dug up and found to be intact.  Now the county is testing the intersection for sinkholes — but carefully, as Murray noted.  

Additional detours and lane closures are possible as crews dig up the line for inspection and any necessary repairs.

Motorists who must travel through the intersection are warned to expect delays.

Sewer collapse closes part of Lexington Road

At least one eastbound lane of Road near Etley Avenue and Cave Hill Cemetery will be closed during Thursday morning’s rush hour after a 48-inch brick sewer collapsed Wednesday evening.

Crews noticed a depression in the road before discovering the sewer had collapsed, and the area will be excavated Thursday morning, said Metropolitan Sewer District Executive   Bud Schardein.

He said it was too early to tell what caused the collapse, but age was a likely factor. That part of the sewer was built in the 1880s and could have been weakened from an unusually wet spring.

“With all the wet weather we’ve had this past spring, that has a tendency to undermine the mortar,” Schardein said.

Road collapse might have killed Colorado family

(2011-07-20)

(wpr) - Engineers say a large section of Wyoming highway where four Colorado family members plunged to their deaths might have totally collapsed in a matter of minutes.

It had been raining for hours Monday night when local authorities warned the Constantinides family, among others, about potential flood conditions near North Brush Creek Campground around midnight.

Not long afterward, the family's van drove into a washed-out portion of Wyoming highway 130 and was swept about 75 yards down Brush Creek. Laurel Constantindies and her three daughters died.

The husband and father, Alex Constantindies, who had grown up in Laramie, survived and escape the vehicle. He and a passerby later rescued Carbon County Emergency management Coordinator John Ziegler, whose car washed out while he was trying to assist in flood protection efforts.

Ziegler said he was "very fortunate" to have survived.

Bruce Burrows of the Wyoming Transportation Department says engineers are studying what happened to the roadway early Tuesday morning. He says preliminary assessments indicate the creek swollen with rain and snowmelt may have undermined the roadway over some hours and then gouged a 25-foot-wide, 9-foot-deep hole in a matter of minutes.

Vehicles are left hanging in mid-air after wall of multi-storey car park collapsed overnight

  • Part of the NCP Nottingham City car park gave way overnight after wall 'fell off'
  • Road closures in place at the scene while structural engineers assess damage
  • Maureen Black, 74, said: 'If someone had been standing there next to one of the cars it could have been fatal. It's a long way to fall'

A multi-storey car park has collapsed leaving cars and vans dangling perilously over the edge 50 feet above the ground. 

Part of the NCP Nottingham City car park gave way overnight with a police spokesman revealing a wall 'fell off' at about 4am.

Road closures are in place at the scene while structural engineers assess the damage.

Maureen Black, 74, told the Nottingham Post: 'If someone had been standing there next to one of the cars it could have been fatal. It's a long way to fall.'

Roger Black, also 74, said: 'I've never seen anything like it, the whole wall has completely come away, and part of the floor as well.

'It's a good thing it happened in the early hours otherwise it could have been a lot worse.'

Onlooker Dennis Etherson, 68, from London, who was also waiting for a coach in Mount Street, said: 'You just can't work out how it's happened.

'We're all discussing it but none of the suggestions make much sense. It's just strange how much of it has come away. I hope they have a full investigation into this.' 

A spokesman for NCP said: 'An incident has occurred during the night at our Nottingham City car park, where a part of the front facia of the building has fallen and is blocking the entrance/exit of the car park. 

'No one has been injured and no vehicle has been damaged. The fire service and police are working with NCP and the site remains closed until it is safe to re-open.

Part of Warrington townhouse development collapses Monday; high winds likely to blame, police say

February 13 2017

Jim McClernand was in his kitchen Monday eating lunch with his wife, Kitty, when she suddenly screamed.

Just a few blocks away, in the Warrington Pointe community, two townhomes under construction came crashing down. "She said it came down like a house of cards," he said.

McClernand said he then saw fire officials, police and representatives from homebuilder Pulte Homes converge on the scene to inspect the rubble.

Warrington's Director of Emergency Services Lee Greenberg said there were no reported injuries and the cause of the collapse is under investigation. He said Monday's high winds — which the National Weather Service reported were sustained at 25 mph to 30 mph with gusts reaching as high as 45 mph — were likely responsible.

Warrington police Chief Daniel Friel confirmed there were workers inside one of the adjoining units at the time of the collapse. 

"We know there may have been workers at the building earlier in the day but are unsure whether they were there when the building collapsed," said Valerie Dolenga, a spokeswoman for the Pulte Group Inc., in a statement issued Monday evening. She said the site is under a safety watch and will have an engineer on standby for the next few days.

After cleanup and evaluation, the company plans to rebuild. The four townhomes were to be the final addition to the 81-home community, Dolenga said.

She confirmed that a gas line shared by a few units in the neighboring building were shut off as a precaution. The  homeowners were advised to stay elsewhere because the building would not be heated, and the company offered to put them up in a hotel.

McClernand said he and his wife saw a few men on the third floor of one of the outer units, which remained standing after the two inner units fell.

"The wind was absolutely incredible," he recalled, adding that he doesn't feel his home is in any danger. "I feel comfortable. It's obvious that the wind blew through there and just took it up. Just like the wind would take an umbrella."

Henderson County building collapse leaves worker dead

A worker died in a construction accident between Horse Shoe and Etowah on Friday afternoon, according to the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.

Major Frank Stout says the victim was 45-year-old Steven Jones from Etowah.

The incident happened around 2:15 p.m.

A construction crew was setting trusses in a building off of Highway 64, Stout said in an email, when there was a "domino effect" of the trusses, possibly caused by the wind.

"Workers showed up today to do their job. It's the end of the week, and sadly a tragic event like this does happen. But it will truly effect, not only the family, but the workers for the rest their lives," Stout told News 13.

Officials waited to release the victim's name until next of kin were notified.
