MIAMI, FLORIDA – According to an article posted on cbslocal.com, residents evacuated from the Crestview Towers in North Miami Beach were allowed to return to their apartments in order to remove their personal belongings. The residents were evacuated from the residential building for approximately three weeks due to concerns about the building’s structural integrity.
One resident spoke with reporters and stated that approximately 300 people were forced to leave their apartments within a few days’ notice. Many residents did not know where to live and had no money. A few residents had families who could take them in until they could find more permanent living arrangements.
One resident asked for help and said, “Don’t let somebody else take the building from us. It’s our building.”
According to the news report, residents were given only 15 minutes to remove their most important items and vacate the building until further notice. City officials stated that the Crestview Towers would be closed until after all structural and electrical issues were taken care of and a new 40-year recertification report was completed.
