President Joe Biden is addressing the collapse of a Florida condominium building in a speech Thursday afternoon.

Biden is expected to comfort families who desperately wait for news about their loved ones after the sudden collapse of the 12-story Champlain Towers South eight days ago. 

He is also expected to thank hundreds of first responders who have pursued painstaking search-and-rescue operations at the site, according to White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Biden is also poised to address federal resources that are being provided to state and local officials, such as the 60 staff and additional 400 personnel across five search-and-rescue teams deployed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency this morning.
