Local structural engineer discusses what may have led to deadly Florida building collapse
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Thursday’s deadly building collapse in Florida has gotten the attention of many local structural engineers.
“This is actually something we see all the time in an earthquake,” said Dr. Kit Miyamoto, the CEO of Miyamoto International Inc.
Miyamoto company assesses building integrity after natural disasters, a mission Miyamoto himself has a lot of firsthand experience with.
Dr. Miyamoto said he believes one of three things caused the Florida building to collapse, all of which have to do with the building’s center column.
