KISSIMMEE, Florida. (AP /WESH) – Authorities say just over 70 units in a central Florida condominium complex were deemed safe after a building inspection found pedestrian crossings leading to condos were at risk of collapsing.
Leaders in Osceola County deemed the Condominium Images of Kissimmee safe to live in after engineers found several safety issues.
Dozens of units of Image Condos are affected by the decision. The county says pedestrian crossings and breezeways between units could fall.
Our NBC Affiliates WESH 2 News, found the staircase of one of the buildings being supported by a two-by-four frame on the first level of the three-story building.
There are also signs posted on some buildings inside the building complex warning people are safe and saying that no one should enter them.
The conclusion came a week after Champlain Towers South in Surfside, Florida, partially killed 18 and left 145 people alone.
The county says 72 units have been affected and are working with residents to find them a place to temporarily stay.
