SURFSIDE, Fla. (AP) — The search for victims of the collapse of a Miami-area high-rise condominium reached its 14th day on Wednesday, with the death toll at three dozen, more than 100 people still unaccounted for, and authorities sounding grimmer and grimmer.

Crews on Tuesday dug through pulverized concrete where the Champlain Towers South building in Surfside once stood. The up-close look at the search, compliments of the video released by the Miami-Dade County Fire Rescue Department, came as eight more deaths were announced — the most for a single day since the search began.

It also came as rain and wind from Tropical Storm Elsa disrupted the effort, though the storm was on track to make landfall far across the state.
