North Miami Beach residents of evacuated high-rise can go back -- but just to move out after Surfside collapse

The Champlain Towers South building in Surfside crumbled apart on June 24, leaving at least 97 dead in the early morning hours, as most of the victims were sleeping. Then on July 2, North Miami Beach authorities said that an inspector’s report found serious structural flaws with the 10-story Crestview Towers building 7 miles away.

Now, residents can finally go back – but only to pack up and move out, the city said Wednesday.
