Authorities announced that the collapse of the property is imminent, while trying to drive away pedestrians and motorists to avoid injuries
As hundreds of rescuers attempt to find survivors in the rubble of the dozens of buildings that collapsed in the earthquake that struck Mexico on Tuesday, there are other structures that, although not collapsed, were seriously damaged and in danger of collapse.
This Wednesday afternoon, soldiers and civil protection personnel warned through loudspeakers about the impending collapse of the Plaza Condesa building.
The building, located at Avenida Juan Escutia 4 , in Mexico City, was cordoned off early because of the significant damage it suffered after the powerful earthquake that left 230 people dead so far.
Faced with the possibility of the collapse of that building, the authorities try to keep pedestrians and cars as far away as possible.
According to the newspaper Reforma , in that area there is also alert about a possible gas leak.
Almost 40 buildings collapsed on Tuesday due to the earthquake.
As rescuers search for survivors among the rubble, authorities also inspect buildings that are damaged and may be in danger of collapse.
