12 Story building collapses in Miami

Sinner saved by the blood of Jesus
From what I have read it's likely a sinkhole and foundation problem. It's built in an area with a high water table.
Pretty much all of Florida has a high water table. The Florida aquifer is giant limestone cavern that is underneath much of Florida. Huge cities pump millions of gallons of water out of it daily. This adds to the naturally occurring sinkhole problems.

Much of Miami is built on limestone and coral. Limestone is brittle. I hope they find more survivors, the likelihood of that is not very high.
