我見 我思 我聞
舊金山是我最喜歡的城市，那裡的美景和温暖氣候吸引了無數居民 ，他們生活在天堂中也必須付出佛州色塞市之慘劇 ，可說是美國建筑史上所罕見，大樓在经過海水浸泡而導至牆邊裂痕，皆未能立即修復，因而造成之悲劇，確實令人惋惜而悲傷。
Surfside Catastrophe Raises Concern About San Francisco Tower
San Francisco’s lavish 58-story Millennium Tower was raising concern after the Surfside condo collapse. The Millennium Tower was billed as one of the top 10 most luxurious buildings in the world. Since it opened in 2009, the tower has sunk down 18 inches into the soft, downtown soil.
The situation has really affected the people’s peace of mind.
A Millennium engineer said that the building was designed for earthquake resistance, remains safe and is not at risk of collapse. The building is spending $100 million for repairs set to be completed next year to install piles into the bedrock of downtown San Francisco beneath the building.
In Florida, at least 24 people are dead and dozens are unaccounted for after the residential building partially collapsed last Thursday. It is very sad what has happened in Surfside which is the first time in our history.
San Francisco is my favorite city. When I came to America that was my first stop. Though I left there many years ago, every time I go back, I still want to stay there longer.
All of us have learned the lesson. We want all the local governments to inspect the older buildings all over the country. We want to make sure they all are safe.
