Ground instability and lack of regulation
The collapse of the second building is attributed to the instability of the ground and the lack of proper regulation in construction. Both buildings were built on a hillside, creating considerable risk for apartment dwellers and nearby buildings.
Residents of the area have expressed their frustration with the local authorities, who, according to them, have not taken the necessary measures to guarantee the safety of the constructions. They also point out that adequate studies of the land were not carried out before granting the construction permits.
Affected families and search for solutions

The collaboration between the authorities, the owner of the buildings, and the residents will be crucial to face this situation and guarantee the well-being and safety of all those involved. In the coming days, the authorities are expected to share more information about the actions that will be taken in relation to the collapse of the buildings and the support that will be provided to the affected residents.
Consequences and Prevention of future disasters
