What is curious about this is that if we get into Street View for that addres, we of course will see an old photo. And in this pictuere we can see an enormous crack from top to down.

Fortunately there were no casualties and only four injured. But it is clear that this collapse could have been forecasted and the building brought down to the floor on time. Thanks to Street View we have proof of it
