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.

I’m on the scene of the partial roof collapse in Northwest Miami-Dade and have just been briefed by @MiamiDadeFire & our building inspectors. All residents have been evacuated & @RedCross is assisting the families.

I will continue to update the public as we get more information.
