MIAMI  — As crews continued to search for victims within the rubble of the collapsed 12-story condominium complex near Miami, officials are reassuring families that they had done their best to look for their missing cherished pets.

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava says at least three sweeps have been conducted at a portion of the complex still standing.

But so far, no animals have been found.

A flank of Champlain Tower South remains mostly intact, but officials say they would demolish the remaining structure as soon as Sunday — ahead of incoming Tropical Storm Elsa that could put the building at risk of collapsing on its own.
