The flicker of candles and glowsticks dotted the oceanfront Monday night as a group gathered for a meditation and moment of silence on the beach near the site of a collapsed condo building just north of Miami Beach.
The death toll on Monday rose to 11 after first responders pulled two more bodies from the rubble, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said. There are 150 people still unaccounted for.
After the gathering, the group walked to a growing memorial near the building to lay flowers, notes and candles. A chain link fence is so full of sentimental ornaments that it is barely visible.
