Many people wonder what happened … was it a sump, a pump or something else?
Well, disturbing new details have come to light that may explain what happened …
It turns out that just three years ago, engineers warned of “major structural damage” to the building.
Here’s a photo of some of the structural damage from the report:
DNYUZ.com reported that three years before the fatal collapse of the Champlain Towers South condominium complex near Miami, a consultant found alarming evidence of “major structural damage” to the concrete slab below the pool deck and “abundant” cracking and crumbling of the columns, beams walls of the parking lot below the 13-story building.
The engineer’s report helped shape plans for a multi-million dollar repair project that would get underway soon, more than two and a half years after building managers were warned, but the building suffered a catastrophic collapse amid Thursday night. , trapping sleeping residents in a huge pile of rubble.
The complex’s management association had disclosed some of the problems in the wake of the collapse, but it wasn’t until city officials released the 2018 report late Friday that the full nature of the damage to the concrete and bars reinforcement, most likely caused by years of exposure. to the corrosive salty air along the South Florida coast – it became chillingly evident.

“Although some of this damage is minor, most of the deterioration of the concrete must be repaired in a timely manner,” the consultant, Frank Morabito, wrote of the damage near the base of the structure as part of his October 2018 report on the 40- year old building in Surfside, Florida. He gave no indication that the structure was at risk of collapse, although he noted that the necessary repairs would be aimed at “maintaining the structural integrity” of the building and its 136 units.
Attorneys for the home association say work has begun to fix the problems. They say work was about to begin before a large part of the building literally collapsed.
But critics point out that the condo board knew about these serious problems for THREE years and did nothing.
Clearly, this could have been avoided.
There will be many lawsuits stemming from this disaster.
