– I really want to say thank you. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but we became like a family. I want to thank everyone who agreed, said Martin Langesfield, whose sister Nicole and her husband have disappeared into the racial audiences, during Wednesday night’s ceremony, he reported. Miami Herald.

There is no longer any hope of finding people alive in landslides, according to Daniela Levine Cava, Mayor of Miami-Dade County.

“Our rescue workers are already searching every day since the collapse as if they were looking for their relatives,” she said, weeping on Wednesday.

Efforts will now shift the focus from searching for survivors to locating the dead.

“We will continue to give our all, as our commitment remains to reunite families with their loved ones,” the Miami-Dade Rescue Service wrote. TwitterAccompanied by a video clip, hundreds of rescue workers bow their heads during the memorial service.

So far, 54 people have been found dead in the landslides. 86 people are still missing. Authorities are trying to confirm how many were actually at home when it collapsed on June 24.
