Dozens of people remain displaced after a partial roof collapse at an apartment complex in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Authorities said the overhang of the roof on the three-story apartment building fell to the ground on Thursday afternoon.

There were no injuries reported and the complex was immediately evacuated as firefighters arrived on the scene. More than 30 people were displaced while the Red Cross has been helping those affected with temporary housing.

Miami-Dade County’s mayor said the building had recently passed its 40-year inspection as an investigation is currently underway. The incident comes only weeks after the deadly condo building collapse in Surfside, where search and recovery efforts have continued.
