Wisconsin condo building evacuated due to structural issues

Source: AP

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — A six-story condominium building that was the subject of resident complaints dating back to June 2020 has been evacuated in a Milwaukee suburb after engineers found the structure was in imminent danger of collapsing.

Police and firefighters cleared the 48-unit Horizon West condominium building in Waukesha on Thursday night after an engineering report said its structural columns were compromised. A total of 65 people were evacuated, city officials said.

“We’re trying to avoid a ‘Florida,’” said Waukesha Police Lt. Kevin Rice, in reference to the condo collapse in Surfside, Florida, in June that claimed the lives of nearly 100 people.

City officials said 23 rooms were provided by the Salvation Army of Waukesha. Two properties near the building were also evacuated because they are in a possible collapse zone, the Journal Sentinel reported.

13. :) ONE building evacuated in America is AP news.

Think what that means!

There are no advanced, prosperous nations with socialist governments. But building evacuations and collapses -- and government collapses -- are common in nations that try/tried to make that dream work. None have succeeded.
