Florida authorities said Wednesday that they found 10 more bodies in the Surfside condo collapse, raising the death toll to 46.

USA Today reported that Miami-Dade County Assistant Fire Chief Raide Jadallah gave families the update in a private meeting, saying that rescue and search crews pulled the bodies from the rubble. Jadallah also said that 32 of the 46 victims have been identified.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava (D) said at a press conference that 94 people are still unaccounted for in the building that collapsed nearly two weeks ago.

The latest announcements from authorities come after officials demolished the remaining parts of the partially collapsed apartment complex on Sunday amid concerns about Hurricane Elsa, which has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.

The Miami-area apartment complex collapsed in the middle of the night on June 24.
