BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Sabotage. A plane engine. A drug lab explosion. These are just some of the rumors circulating and being peddled online in the hours after the horrific building collapse on Collins Avenue in Surfside.
While officials as of 12:30 p.m. Thursday report that as many as 50 people remain unaccounted for, Miami-Dade County Emergency Managers are urging the public to rely on the news media for real-time information, not social media where people are making up stories — just like they did in the 2020 election — and peddling those stories as truth.
Miami-Dade Police sent this message to the public — on social media — moments ago:
“The official sources of information regarding the Surfside Building Collapse are the Miami-Dade Police Department and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. All information is being provided to the press on the scene.”
Miami-Dade Search and Rescue — for those who may be new to the area or just unaware — is the preeminent urban search and rescue team in the world. Miami-Dade Search and Rescue is routinely dispatched to major international events.
The search, rescue and recovery operation continues on Collins north of 80th Street.
