WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A pre-World War II apartment house collapsed Saturday in southwestern Poland, leaving five people dead, four injured and one missing, authorities said.

Scores of firefighters with dogs were searching the rubble of the building in the town of Swiebodzice (Shvyeh-'boh-tchi-tseh), according to Daniel Mucha, regional spokesman for the firefighters. He said the collapse of two floors of the three-floor building might have been caused by a gas explosion.

Regional governor Pawel Hreniak said the search-and-rescue operation was expected to continue through Sunday.

He confirmed five fatalities, including two school-age children.

Still, firefighters looking for one more missing person said there were no sounds yet coming from the building's bricks and broken wood.

Prime Minister Beata Szydlo was heading to the site, 420 kilometers (250 miles) southwest of Warsaw, to be with the victims and the rescue workers.

The governor of Swiebodzice, Bogdan Kozuchowicz, said the pre-World War II building was recently renovated and had been in good technical condition.

The injured were taken to hospitals in Swiebodzice and in Wroclaw. One survivor, identified only by her first name Stanislawa, told TVN24 that she was "miraculously saved."

"I was in the kitchen and suddenly it was dark and full of debris and some broken wooden planks," she said from her hospital bed in Swiebodzice. "I got on top of those planks and started calling 'Help! Help!' Two firefighters came and pulled me out by the arm."

She said her husband was resting on the bed at the time of the collapse.

"I don't know what has happened to him," she said, her voice trembling.

With her teenage son, also a survivor, at her side, she said the family had lost everything.

Tunnel collapse knocks Nepal’s 100-kW Budum Rivulet Micro Hydropower offline


The canal that supplies water to the 100-kW Budum Rivulet Micro Hydropower project in Nepal has collapsed, news agencies are reporting.

The project, at Gudel of Mahakulung rural municipality in the Solukhumbu district, began operating in 2015.

It is reported that a 30-meter-long section of the canal collapsed and will take a minimum of one month to repair. More than 750 households have lost electricity as a result of the collapse.


We have described a time preceding the last weeks when emergency management teams would be exhausted, turning a deaf ear in countries like the US and Britain to cries of "terrorism" and a need to install martial law. What could cause such a state, worldwide? Earthquakes have increased in frequency and strength, and accidents in the stretch zones are increasing because the plates have loosened up and are moving a greater distance during each adjustment. The recent breaks in Internet cables around the Arabian Plate are a case in point. Where earthquakes of lower magnitude are registered and often felt, when they increase in size to a magnitude 6 or 7 or greater, infrastructure is destroyed.

What will it be like when earthquakes are happening to most cities around the world, simultaneously? Stretch zones will experience even more destruction, as the infrastructure will be pulled apart. Gas mains will explode into holocausts. Travel will become impossible when roadways are torn apart or heaved up. And the increasingly volatile atmosphere, jerked about by the wobble, will make air travel treacherous. Where faltering on occasion now, satellites will falter increasingly, making communications difficult. All this leads to panic, so that distracted workers cause malfunctions in services. This can be expected before the last weeks arrive.

Transport paralysed in Turkana as Kainuk bridge collapses

Motorists travelling to and from Turkana County were left stranded after a major bridge collapsed on Sunday evening following heavy rains experienced in the area.

The collapse of Kainuk bridge, which connects Turkana county to the rest of North Rift region, temporarily cut off transport between Kitale and Lodwar towns on Sunday night and better part of Monday.

Kenyans took to social media to lament saying that the bridge occasionally collapses whenever there is heavy downpour.

“Nearly every rainy season, the Kainuk bridge in Turkana gets damaged and every time, a new tender to reconstruct it is handed out,” tweeted Saddique Shabban, a sports journalist.

10-year-old child killed, 3 people injured in toppling of 5-story building in Mansoura

November 1, 2017
4:50 pm

A 10-year-old child was killed and three others injured in the city of Mansoura on Wednesday after a five-story building toppled over to lean on an opposite building.

Governor of Dakahleya Ahmed al-Sha’arawy and head of Dakahleya Security Directorate Ayman al-Mallah, are among government officials who inspected the area of the incident. Security forces cordoned off the area to prevent people approaching the scene until the building is demolished.

Sha’arawy ordered that five adjacent buildings be evacuated, and organized shelter for affected families in al-Nasereya Sporting Club. He also arranged for the disbursement of urgent compensation of LE11,000, and the expenses of daily subsistence for each family equivalent to LE100 pounds a month.

In a statement to Al-Masry Al-Youm, Sha’arawy said that this building was part of the plan to monitor dilapidated residential housing. An inspection found that it was about to collapse and was endangering the neighboring buildings.

He added that a demolishing order was issued, and its owner was informed through the police department on October 4 to evacuate and implement the decision to remove it, but the residents refused and the owner failed to implement.

“We will begin immediately to remove the building and examine the cause of the collapse by a specialized engineering committee, and a report will be made to understand what happened and prevent its recurrence,” Sha’arawy said.

Firefighters have evacuated five adjacent buildings, where 22 families were living. The Social Solidarity Directorate will help provide shelter for them.

The owners of the apartments in the building gathered around the governor and demanded that he provide alternative apartments for them, as they are now stranded, and declared their refusal to stay in the tents set up by the governorate for them.

“I was sleeping and woke up to find the refrigerator moving and the bed tilting,” said Hamdi Daoud, who lives in the fourth floor of the building. “I was surprised by the house leaning strongly. I threw myself from the balcony (to the opposite building). My wife was out and when she returned with my daughter she found me in the street,” he said.

“I put all my savings in this apartment and I do not have anything to buy another apartment,” Daoud said.

“I left my apartment at 6 am, and after half an hour I received a call that the house was leaning. I ran back and found the house leaning on the opposite building and its entrance was swallowed up by the ground, and we could not enter it again and all that I had is locked inside,” said Saneya Mohamed, a resident of the building.

A team from the Mansoura Prosecution office inspected the scene, and looked at the property from both directions, to find out the causes of the landslide, which led to the fall of the first floor under ground, and then the leaning of the building. The prosecution team also visited to Mansoura International Hospital to take testimonies of the injured in the incident.

The prosecution ordered the arrest of the owner of the building as well as the summoning of the district chief and the director of the engineering department for them to be held accountable for the collapse.

A tunnel collapsed at a North Korean nuclear test site, reportedly killing 200 people

  • Japanese media reports that about 200 North Koreans died in a tunnel collapse at a nuclear test site.
  • In September, North Korea tested a powerful nuclear weapon that experts say rocked the mountain and made it unstable.
  • If the test site is compromised, the hazardous radioactive material could spread across the region.

Japan's TV Asahi reports that about 200 North Koreans have died in a tunnel collapse at a nuclear test site in Punggye-ri, in North Korea's northeast.

In early September, North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test there, detonating a nuclear device under a mountain. Experts have said it was a hydrogen bomb about 10 times as powerful as the first atomic bombs dropped on Japan at the close of World War II.

Satellite imagery has revealed that the mountain above the test site has since suffered a series of landslides and seismic aftershocks thought to have resulted from the blast.

North Korean sources told TV Asahi that a tunnel collapsed on 100 workers and that an additional 100 who went in to rescue them also died under the unstable mountain.

The tunnels in and out of the test site had been damaged, and the workers may have been clearing or repairing them to resume nuclear testing.

If the test site is compromised, hazardous radioactive material left over from the blast may seep out.

If that debris were to reach China, Beijing would see that as an attack on its country, Jenny Town, the assistant director of the US-Korea Institute and a managing editor at 38 North, previously told Business Insider.

Chamba, October 20

6 people injured as bridge collapses in Himachal’s Chamba
The 15-year-old bridge was constructed under the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development. ANI

Six people were injured after a concrete bridge, linking Chamba town in Himachal Pradesh with Pathankot in Punjab, collapsed on Thursday due to sheer negligence. The injured have been taken to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and immediate treatment has been given to them. District Collector Sudesh Kumar Mokhta with other officials reached the spot and took charge of the situation. “The collapse of the bridge is because of a default in the construction map or the poor use of material in the construction. We have ordered an inquiry and action will be taken,” he said.

One southbound lane open after partial bridge collapse in North Palm

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

1:00 p.m Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017

Parts of a railing and sidewalk collapsed on a North Palm Beach bridge just north of Northlake Boulevard, halting boating and shutting down lanes on U.S. 1.

North Palm Beach Police received a call Wednesday morning about a part of a railing and sidewalk on the bridge in the water. The bridge on U.S. 1 sits over the C-17 Canal, locally known as the Earman River.

The bridge is just south of Frigate’s Waterfront Bar & Grill and north of an IHOP.

Village police and the Coast Guard shut down both sides of the water under the bridge.

They won’t know the cause until FDOT engineers are finished checking it out, Pearson said.

“It just fell in,” he said of the railing and sidewalk in the water.

Northbound lanes over the bridge north of Northlake remain open. Southbound traffic was being redirected at South Anchorage Drive to Lighthouse Drive. Lighthouse Drive was congested from the detour.

Crews opened the southbound lane closest to the median to traffic early Wednesday afternoon. Police kept the sidewalks blocked on both sides of the bridge.

John Gaines, of North Palm Beach, was finishing breakfast at the IHOP just after 9 a.m. when he felt a vibration. Gaines, who is retired from the Navy, speculated maybe the marine store next door had dropped a boat

When he came outside, he saw no boats — only the damaged bridge.

“I was curious to see…I thought maybe a boat hit it, but no, it fell by itself. That’s even stranger,” Gaines said.

A drone has been sent out to check out the damage.

Bow’s Birchdale Road bridge collapses

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

The Birchdale Bridge in Bow is now impassable to all types of traffic including pedestrians after a recent collapse.

​​​The red-listed bridge, which spans White Brook, has been closed to motor vehicle traffic since July 2015, after an inspection of the bridge showed it had critical structural deficiencies. Now, it is closed to all foot and bicycle traffic, including joggers, walkers and bicyclists, according to Bow’s website.

Voters in March approved a $772,000 warrant article for the replacement of the bridge. According to town documents, $664,000 of the project will be paid for by state bridge aid, which would be available by fiscal year 2025.

The bridge is planned to be 30 feet wide, 8 feet wider than the current bridge, and will include space for two bike lanes should the town decide to install them in the future. The bridge is also twice as long as the current bridge – going from 13 to 26 feet – to comply with the state’s 50-year flood requirements.

Construction was expected to start on July 1 and finish on Nov. 1. According to the town’s official newsletter, the town is waiting on a final easement needed for the project. Once that is received, the town will issue a notice to proceed to the contractor.
