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.

Thyagarajanagar building collapse kills 22-year-old
Bangalore Mirror Bureau | Updated: Nov 11, 2018, 09:56 IST


Rescue work was underway till late in the night
Six families in the adjacent building have been evacuated as a precautionary measure

A 22-year-old youth died after he was trapped underneath a partially collapsed residential building on Ist main Sai Mandir Road near Sai Baba temple in Thyagarajanagar late Saturday evening.

The construction of ground plus four floored building was almost complete, but a major disaster was averted since it was unoccupied. Two workers, including the victim, identified as Sohail, was present at the site when the incident took place.

They were doing some welding work outside the building and Sohail was asked to go into the basement to switch off the machine when the building caved in. A huge pit had been dug in the tiny plot adjacent to this almost completed residential structure to make one more building which is being suspected to be the reason for the ground to cave in bringing the building down. The building at present is leaning on to another ground plus three storeyed structure adjacent to it.

A major disaster was averted as there were no workers inside the collapsed building and none of the occupants of the adjacent building were also hurt in the mishap. As many as six families living in the adjacent building have been evacuated as a precautionary measure till the collapsed building is removed. “We have spotted Sohail’s body but it is caught between a pillar and since the entire building at the moment is leaning on to the adjacent structure, we will have to carefully retrieve it,” said a rescue personnel.

As many as 50 firemen and 35 members from both state and national disaster response force were engaged in rescue and clearance work at the time of going to press. “It is suspected that the mishap was caused when an attempt to construct one more building in the vacant plot next to the building. We have to check of necessary permissions from taken,” said an official. Initially it was suspected that there were four people trapped under the debris but later rescue personnel claimed that there was only one person trapped under it.

Seven Hurt in Building Collapse in Berwick

https://twitter.com/cblackburne/status/1042507432856039424?ref_src=...

BERWICK, Pa. -- Seven people were sent to the hospital after the roof of a vacant building came tumbling down in Berwick.

Firefighters said no one was inside the building on Second Street when it started falling apart around 3 p.m. Wednesday, but people on the sidewalk and sitting in their cars were hurt in the wreck.

Amber Soboleski saw it all from across the street and immediately called 911.

“You couldn't see two feet in front of you but you could hear a woman screaming. It was terrifying,” Soboleski said.

That woman was screaming for help. The passenger in her Dodge Durango was trapped but firefighters were able to rescue her.

The chief of the Berwick Fire Department was even stunned when he saw the damage.

“Nothing like this. This is the first time in 30 years I’ve seen something like this,” Fire chief Randy Remphrey said.

Fire officials said a vape shop near the corner of the building has been closed since Saturday because of water damage, so officials are looking to see if weather played a role in the roof collapse too.

“With the number of storms we've had over the summer - it definitely could have been a contributing factor,” Jon Pruitt of Berwick said.

Pruitt lives just down the street. He said the plume of dust from the collapse was higher than some buildings.

“It's scary. A lot of these buildings have been here for 75-100 years if not more,” Pruitt said.

Firefighters said they will be bringing in a crane Thursday morning to take a better a look at the building and figure out the cause of the collapse.

Parts of Second Street and Market Street in Berwick will be closed as a result.

13 People Forced to Evacuate Homes After Philadelphia House Collapse

A house collapsed Sunday around 6 a.m. in the Mantua neighborhood of Philadelphia, sending neighbors fleeing from their homes into the early morning rain, officials said.

No one was home when the house crumbled. Neighbors told NBC10 the owner was likely at work. Meanwhile, framed photographs and paintings could be seen hanging from the exposed walls. 

Officials also checked on two adjoining properties for injured residents and potential damage. First responders told NBC10 that 13 people fled from two of the neighboring houses, located on the 3900 block of Aspen Street.

"It's just terrible. I've never seen anything like that," neighbor Connie Lawhorn said. "Thank God that nobody was at home."

Lawhorn didn't hear any loud noises when the house collapsed, but neighbor Crystal Nelson told NBC10 she heard a loud boom and thought a tree had fallen. 

"You would not believe that something like this can happen," she said.

No injuries were reported

3 Dead After 6-Storey Building Falls On Another Near Delhi, Many Trapped

A team of the National Disaster Response Force has been called in from neighbouring Ghaziabad to help in the search and rescue operations.

Updated: July 18, 2018 07:04 IST

New Delhi Two buildings collapsed in Greater Noida near Delhi on Tuesday as a six-storey under-construction building fell on top of a four-storey next to it. 18 families lived in the four-storey building in the Shah Beri village, according to reports. Two dead bodies have been recovered by the National Disaster Response Force or NDRF so far. Many are feared trapped.

The National Disaster Response Force or NDRF was called in from neighbouring Ghaziabad to help in the search and rescue operations, along with hundreds of policemen, who are trying to control the crowd.

The crowd, agitated, says the buildings collapsed around 8:30 pm but help only reached an hour and a half later. A local, Praveen Srivastava, blamed unscrupulous builders for the collapse, and said the rescue efforts have been slow. A look out notice has been issued against the builder.

"It took such a long time since the collapse but no rescue workers have reached. Not even an ambulance", he said.

Getting to the area is proving to be exceptionally difficult as the entire stretch is dug up and due to the monsoon, potholes are water-logged.

Heavy machinery has been brought in to clear the debris. Drilling machines are being used to remove metal rods so that the debris can be cleared and the people trapped be reached

A video showed a policeman dangling from a crane, trying to locate those trapped through the windows of the building.

Locals say this area in Greater Noida west has a lot of small builders, who have constructed multiple 10-12-story buildings.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath taking stock of the incident, asked the District Magistrate to follow up with the NDRF team and the police for relief measures and to ensure immediate rescue
