Rescue workers continue searching for condo collapse survivors in Miami
Rescuers continued to search for survivors of the collapsed residential complex in Surfside, Florida on Tuesday. The death toll from the collapse rose to eleven after first responders pulled two bodies from the site on Monday. Miami-Dade mayor Daniella Levine Cava said 150 people were still missing. Officials also said Monday that first responders are still on a search and rescue operation. “They are out there with every resource they need to make sure they can search this area,” said Levine Cava. Miami-Dade Chief Fire Rescue Assistant Ray Jadallah said crews had identified additional voids in the rubble where residents could be found, but there was no evidence anyone was inside. Jadallah said the decision to move from search and rescue to recovery could not be made until crews are certain that no part of the rubble could be alive.
After record-breaking heat, the residents of the Pacific Northwest want to “see relief”
After a record-breaking heat wave hit the Pacific Northwest in recent days, residents will be “relieved” on Tuesday, according to Tyler Kranz, a meteorologist for Portland’s National Weather Service. However, Kranz noted that temperatures will still remain warmer than usual. “We’re usually in the upper 70s at this time of year and we’re clearly a bit above that,” he said. “But it’s way better than 115.” In three days, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle temperatures climbed to 113 and 106, respectively, beating previous highs, stifling numbers for an area where many residents do not have air conditioning – fewer than 50% of Seattle’s homes have none Systems, and while a recent survey shows that nearly 80% of Portland homes have air conditioning, about half of those are window units, which provide significantly less relief than a central ventilation system.
Biden is on his way with an infrastructure deal and will speak speak in Wisconsin
President Joe Biden will get his infrastructure deal on the streets and seek to sell voters the economic benefits of the $ 973 billion package to Wisconsin voters on Tuesday in hopes of strengthening the bipartisan deal, largely through pledges of millions new jobs. Biden will travel to La Crosse, which has a population of 52,000, and tour the public transport center, followed by a speech on the infrastructure package announced last week. The president delivered his message to Democratic donors Monday that the deal was a way for the United States to enforce the principles of democracy and the economic power that can come from making dramatic investments in the country’s future. The deal spends $ 1.2 trillion over eight years on mostly traditional infrastructure, including transportation, energy, water and telecommunications systems.
Serena Williams goes to court at Wimbledon
Wimbledon will continue on Tuesday with number 6 seed Serena Williams in the first round against Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Williams, who want to win her eighth Wimbledon title and 24th major title, suffered a surprise loss to Elena Rybakina in the fourth round of the French Open earlier this month. The American tennis star is at Wimbledon after announcing that she will not be participating in the Olympics for the first time since the 2004 Games. Addressing her decision last week, she said there were “many reasons why I made my Olympic decision. I don’t feel like going into it today, but maybe another day.”
Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s first novel is a well-known story
Acclaimed film director Quentin Tarantino is tackling a new art form with the release of his first novel on Tuesday. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is a novella of his 2019 Oscar-winning film of the same name. Publisher HarperCollins promises that it will be an “always surprising, sometimes shocking” version of the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio as an actor in Hollywood and in 1969 Brad Pitt was featured as his stunt double. Tarantino could soon have more time to write: he has announced that he will retire from filmmaking after another film.
