    Surfside: One year later

    Surfside: One year later

    On June 24, 2021, at about 1:22 a.m., a 12-story beachfront condo building near Miami suddenly collapsed.
     
    Hundreds of first responders spent countless hours and days literally crawling through the rubble of what was once the Champlain Towers South. 
     
    Families clinched onto any bit of hope they could.  In the end, 98 people died. Only four people were rescued from the rubble as  35 were saved from the uncollapsed portion of the building. 
     
    There is still a full investigation underway, with teams determining exactly what caused the building to collapse, but it can’t ever be said this happened without warning. 
     
    Lawsuits and preliminary reports show the condo board failed to keep up the maintenance and assessments required to keep the building in safe conditions. This tragedy has not gone unnoticed to lawmakers. While nothing was done earlier this year during the regular legislative session, there was something given to the governor during last month’s special session. 
     
    This will mean big changes beginning in December 2024. Beyond the Soundbite co-hosts Greg and Gary were in Tallahassee for that special session and there is where we want to start breaking down the legislation, what we know, what still needs to be known and the impact on you. 
     
    And it’s all in the latest Beyond the Soundbite podcast.

    Central Florida: The Puerto Rican Connection

    Dr. Fernando Rivera leads the research hub and talks the good, the bad and everything in between that is Puerto Rico in this week’s Beyond the Soundbite.
