Five-Storey Building Collapsed in Casablanca, No Casualties Reported – Local Authorities

Casablanca – A five-storey building completely collapsed on boulevard Al-Hank in the Moulay Youssef urban district, without causing any casualties, reported the local authorities of the Casablanca-Anfa district prefecture.

Authorities had intervened earlier in the day to evacuate the building and nearby shops and buildings, and secure the area, after noticing worrying cracks in the building in question, whose collapse led to the partial destruction of an adjoining building, the same source added.

While operations to clear the rubble from the collapsed building continued, the judicial police launched an investigation, under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office, to elucidate the circumstances of this incident, the same source concluded.
