Rescue workers continue to look for survivors of a building collapse near Miami Beach. 

At least four people are dead and about 159 are unaccounted for after the condo building partially collapsed early yesterday morning. The governor of Florida wants to get to root cause of the collapse - Republican Governor Ron DeSantis said it's a "devastating scene" at the site in Surfside. The 12-story building, called Champlain Towers South, collapsed just after 1:30 a.m. local time. It's not yet clear why the building collapsed — but when the dust settled, the building appeared to be sheared in two, with bunk beds, dining rooms and entire homes left blowing in the wind.

Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz called the incident a "tragedy without precedent in the USA," and Senator Marco Rubio said he "can't imagine having someone that I love under the rubble."
