Here’s the biggest news you missed this weekend

3 more bodies found after demolition of Champlain Towers South in Florida

After rescue efforts were put on hold over fears that winds from approaching Tropical Storm Elsa would topple the partially collapsed Miami condominium building, the remaining structure of the Champlain Towers South was demolished with a loud bang and an almost silent collapse Sunday night. When the billowing smoke and dust that blanketed the area cleared, the remaining structure that had hampered search-and-rescue efforts for 11 days was gone. Search efforts resumed shortly after, allowing crews to return to parts of the rubble pile. Three bodies were discovered Monday, raising the death toll to 27. More than 100 people remain missing, according to Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
