After the collapse of an apartment complex in Surfside near Miami, Florida, the death toll is approaching 50.
Ten more bodies have been found under the rubble, bringing the official death toll to 46. Dozens of people are still missing, American media emphasize.
Expectations of finding survivors in the 130-apartment construction that collapsed on June 24 have been ruined.
Salvage work is disadvantaged by the foothills of the forthcoming Hurricane Elsa.
