    The Thursday morning collapse forced more than 200 residents to evacuate the Gold King Apartments at 13285 Northeast 6th Avenue.

    Crews had been working on the roof of the building earlier in the week but hadn't finished before heavy rain moved into the area, causing water to get into the building. The water flooded several of the approximately 80 units, causing dropped ceilings and flooding the building's elevator shaft.
