The death toll from the Surfside building collapse rose to 90 on Sunday, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Kava said.
Seventy-one of the 90 victims have been identified and their families have been notified, officials say 31 people are missing.
“It’s also important to note that, as before, we can really be responsible for a missing person who dies after being identified,” Kawa said.

Restoration work was carried out on Friday as the weather worsened, with the first day of respondents continuing the next day. Kava praised Surfside’s rescue team for gathering the biggest non-storm response in state history.
Families of the victims, first aid workers and members of the Israeli Defense Forces, who helped with the effort, gathered in Surfide on Saturday night for a memorial walk on Collins Avenue. The march remembered and thanked all those who worked together in contributing to the rescue, and acknowledged the “huge tragedy and extraordinary actions.”
Kawa again emphasized the support of the Israeli community and handed over the district keys to the Israeli commander and colonel “for their ruthless devotion and faithful service to our church.” The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Service also handed them badges.

Since June 24, the world has continued to mourn the victims of the Miami and Surfside collapses. The rescue team has removed millions of pounds of concrete and debris since the crash.
More than two weeks later, a family cat was found alive during a rescue operation last week.
Restoration work will continue until 31 missing people are found.
