The engineer leading the probe said if they uncover evidence the collapsed building had flaws that could impact other buildings, they would alert the public.
There is some good news for now for people who fear the collapse of the collapse of the Champlain Towers South hinted at problems with other condos of similar age and design. NBC 6’s Tony Pipitone reports.
She said the agency would sound the engineering alarm if it found deficiencies that could suggest another collapse could soon happen elsewhere, especially at Champlain Towers North, which was built around the same time by the same companies as its doomed larger sister to the south.
"We do have a
professional and ethical responsibility to inform the public
if we find any safety concerns that may affect the Champlain
Towers North and any other buildings," asked.
When asked if the absence of such warning so far means all is good for the tower to the north, she replied, "You can infer that we have collected lots of evidence from the site and that we have not yet identified a reason, a safety concern, to alert the public at this moment. However, if we do find that, we do absolutely have a professional, ethical obligation to inform the public."
