The death toll in the collapse of a south Florida condominium building rose Monday evening to 28 with 117 people still missing, as emergency workers continue the search ahead of an approaching tropical storm.

Demolition experts late Sunday imploded the rest ... remaining portion of the partially collapsed condominium. They feared it was unstable and could come down in the face of high winds from that approaching tropical storm, Elsa.

Explosives were triggered around 10:03 local time Sunday night. It took just seconds for the rest of the structure to fall.

Extra efforts were made to cover the original collapse site to make sure new debris did not interfere with search-and-rescue efforts there.

The 12-story condominium building at Surfside, Florida, north of Miami, partially collapsed without warning early on June 24th. Meanwhile, officials are watching the approach of tropical storm, Elsa.

Elsa is passing, at present over Cuba, just east of Havana, and on the way to the Florida Keys, expected to reach that area on Tuesday.

It could approach the western coast of Florida on Wednesday. That track would spare Surfside from a direct hit, but forecasters still expect the region to experience strong winds and gusts of at least 65 kilometers per hour.

A United Nations report says Venezuelan security forces carried out fewer extrajudicial killings for almost a year, beginning last June, but it accuses them of a continued pattern of torture, or cruel treatment of individuals, as well as enforced disappearances and incommunicado detentions.

That report was from the UN High Commissioner for human rights and was released on Monday calling for President Nicolas Maduro to cease the use of excessive force during demonstrations.
