Seven (7) Storey Building caves-in ...many feared missing (+VIDEO)

Multiple reports from Kenya, the capital of Nairobi indicates that 15 people had been reported missing after a seven-storey building collapsed in a residential area of the Kware, Embakasi today, Tuesday. Kenyan Red Cross reports that the building’s occupants had been asked to leave when cracks were noticed some time earlier.

“Basically this was a disaster to come. An evacuation was sounded. People evacuated but we might have some people who might have been left behind,” Pius Masai, deputy director of the National Disaster Management Unit, said at the site of the collapse. Meanwhile, Japheth Koome, Nairobi County Police Commander, said a specialised team from the Kenya Defence Forces had been called in to help with the rescue operations.
