Surfside, Florida: Tropical storm Elsa is headed towards the Sunshine states coast so a decision had to be made. People would be displaced and surrounding areas could possibly be affected. The choice was one that had to be chosen. Authorities organized a controlled demolition that took place late Sunday night into early morning between the hours of 10 PM and 3 AM.
Elsa is to thank for the expediated demo process as her threat poised some very real dangers; If the winds where sever enough pieces of building could separate do damage to surrounding areas, and power loss or flooding could be a real issue. So the detonator was pushed and the building became rubble on top of graves.
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers here at IMU Media go out to all those who lost loved ones, friends, and family members. The burden you carry is heavy, do know if you did lose someone in this tragedy you now have a true guardian angle watching over you.
