President Biden and first lady Jill Biden will visit Surfside, Florida, on Thursday, nearly a week after the partial collapse of a 12-story residential building that left at least 11 dead and 150 still unaccounted for.
The state of play: Rescue specialists from Israel and Mexico have joined American crews on the sixth day of the search for life. Biden has approved an emergency declaration to provide federal disaster relief to supplement the local response.
- The White House is coordinating Biden's visit with local officials to avoid delays to the search-and-rescue efforts, per the Miami Herald.
