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.

Miami-area residential building evacuated after ROOF COLLAPSE (PHOTO)

Miami-area residential building evacuated after ROOF COLLAPSE (PHOTO)
A three-story apartment building in Hialeah, a city in Miami-Dade County, has been evacuated after a portion of its roof broke off and crashed on the ground outside. It is located some 15 miles from the collapsed Surfside condo.

Photos and videos circulating on social media on Thursday showed the debris along the side of the building, as rescue workers milled about. 

“The building was evacuated and there are no occupants inside,” Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said, adding there were no reported injuries “at this time.”

This is the second Miami-Dade area residential complex to be evacuated this month, amid mounting concerns over building safety in the wake of the fatal collapse of a beachfront condominium in Surfside.

Mexico City rail overpass collapses onto road, killing at least 23

At least 23 people were killed and 65 were hospitalized when a railway overpass and train collapsed onto a busy road in Mexico City on Monday night, crushing cars under fallen carriages and rubble.

The authorities halted rescue efforts shortly after they began, saying there was a risk that more train parts and debris could slam down onto the road.

A video on local channel Milenio TV showed the structure plummeting onto a stream of cars near the Olivos station in the southeast of the city at around 10.30 p.m. local time, sending up clouds of dust.

Rhode Island Around 6:45 a.m., it was a rude awakening for the people living in the building on Bluff Avenue.

“My wife and I were asleep and we heard a huge crashing roar,” second-floor tenant Brian Wilder recalled. “Like a thousand bricks falling, which is what it was.”

Six killed in building collapse in northern Egypt | Reuters

Six killed in building collapse in northern Egypt

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (Reuters) - At least six people died when an old four-storey building collapsed in the coastal city of Alexandria in northern Egypt, local officials said on Thursday.

Authorities had issued several restoration orders for the old building, which collapsed on Wednesday evening, but they had been ignored, Alexandria province Governor Mohamed el-Sherief told reporters at the scene.

Two families were living in the building and those killed included three men and three women, officials said.

Authorities have evacuated the building next to the one that collapsed after cracks appeared, according to residents.

Building collapses are common in Egypt because of lax building standards and poor maintenance.

Floors collapse in former Hamilton Hotel in downtown Hagerstown

Nov 25 2020

Maryland

At least part of the first block of North Jonathan Street in downtown Hagerstown is expected to remain closed, possibly into next week, after a partial building collapse late Wednesday, Hagerstown Fire Marshal Doug DeHaven said.

No injuries had been reported as of 8 p.m. Wednesday and to fire officials' knowledge, there were no tenants or construction workers still in the building, DeHaven said.

First responders were bringing pets out and Hagerstown code enforcement officers and structural engineers were on the scene Wednesday night to inspect the interior of the northwest corner of The Aria at Hamilton Plaza, at the corner of Jonathan and West Washington streets, DeHaven said. The building is across Jonathan Street from the Washington County Administrative Complex.

The building's owner is taking care of immediate shelter needs for the 17 displaced occupants, DeHaven said.

The Humane Society of Washington County was assisting with the various animals, including dogs, cats and ferrets, that were being brought out of the building, DeHaven said.

A condemned notice was being posted on the building, he said.

Emergency crews had searched the area of the collapsed interior floors at least three times and not found anyone, Hagerstown Fire Chief Steve Lohr said earlier.

Ash Azadi, managing partner of a group that is renovating the former hotel, was on the scene. He said he believed everyone got out of the building.

DeHaven said he didn't know how many tenants were living in the building, but they would not be able to return for some time. In addition to the partial collapse inside, utilities were turned off, he said.

DeHaven said the third floor of the back corner of the U-shaped building had collapsed onto the second floor and the second into the first. The fourth floor appeared to be dangling, he said. In the early evening DeHaven said he didn't believe there were any issues with the roof, but he hadn't made it up that far.

The interior collapse affected areas near units 401, 301, 201 and what had been a Rexall drug store in the first floor, the fire chief said. One of the things the building inspector will examine is the risk of exterior walls being pushed out, he said.

Lohr said 51 first responders from the Hagerstown Fire Department, Washington County Special Operations, the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. and Community Rescue Service responded.

Debris from the collapsed floors was visible through windows on the North Jonathan Street side of the building. The building had been under renovation.

Construction workers were on site and were all accounted for after the collapse, DeHaven said. But he didn't know yet what type of work they were doing when the collapse occurred nor did he yet know the cause of the collapse.

The incident was reported to Washington County 911 at 4:49 p.m., a supervisor said.

Resident Linda Sowell said she was in her third-floor apartment when she heard a loud crash. Sowell said she got her robe and sneakers on and went out her apartment door to find part of the ceiling had collapsed down the hall.

She said the third and fourth floors of the four-story building have been renovated, but the second floor was still being fixed up. Those three floors are residences.

The first floor is commercial space, including The Yarn Shop.

Sowell said tenant information was being collected so the American Red Cross could provide assistance.

She did not immediately know where she was going to spend the night.

"I just hope they do right by the tenants because we moved in when we probably should not have moved in," Sowell said.

Sowell and fourth-floor resident Patrick Herbert said they both moved into the building in August.

Herbert said he didn't hear the collapse, but a flashing warning light and buzzer, part of the building's fire alarm system, went off in the apartment. He and his family got out using the stairwell. They live in the middle of the building, not near the collapsed part, he said.

Herbert said he and his fiancee had looked at renting a different unit, pointing to the fourth-floor apartment in the collapsed area.
