The search is on for any survivors and victims, residents who have survived are sharing horror stories.

Raisa Rodriguez left a voicemail on her brother’s phone as he left the building. “Anyone over there? Hello?” he said. “Oh my god! What’s the matter? The whole building is gone!”

Ileana Montegudo said that a loud sound woke her up from her sleep. She started running after seeing a crack breaking through the wall of her living room. “I start going downhill fast and I hear a crack, crack, crack,” she said.

Her neighbor Sara Neer lived on the ground floor and went out after hearing a loud bang. Then he saw the underground garage of the building colliding.

“We ran out of the building,” she said. “And then another big boom. Then we didn’t see anything. After the big boom and with white clouds all around it suddenly calmed down.”

Officials announced on Wednesday that dead bodies of two children were found in the rubble. They were sisters aged 4 and 10.
