Surfside, Florida building collapse - important phone numbers for residents/family

SURFSIDE, Fla. – Several rescue teams are working at the scene where the Champlain Towers South building near 88th Street and Collins Avenue partially collapsed on Thursday morning.

A family reunification hotline has been set up at 305-614-1819, and people can also open a Missing Person Report Online.

If you live at the Champlain Towers at 8777 Collins Ave., you are encouraged to complete this Wellness Check Form as part of efforts to ensure all tenants of the building are located. A Family Assistance Center is open at the Surfside Recreational Center at 9301 Collins Ave. for people who are unable to locate relatives who live in the building.

For more information on those county resources, click here. If you need information about a loved one who lives in the Champlain Towers, another emergency hotline has also been created: 305-993-1071

People who have been rescued or are in the area are being kept away from the condo building to prevent injuries from falling debris and to prevent further collapse. The emergency number is specifically for people who are trying to find out about loved ones in the building.
