Rescuers are starting to search again for survivors of the Champlain Towers South condo in Surfside, Florida, after the building was demolished in a controlled explosion Sunday night.

Earlier, local authorities told residents in the surrounding area to shelter in place as well as close all windows, doors and air intakes. Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said the shelter-in-place order lifts two hours after the demolition is complete. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, during a news briefing early Saturday, said the state will pay for all costs of the demolition.

The death toll rose to 27 people as of Monday, with 118 still missing after part of the condo collapsed on June 24.
