Authorities told sobbing families Wednesday that there was “no chance of life” in the rubble.

They planned to shift their efforts to recovering more remains.

The announcement followed increasingly somber reports from emergency officials, who said they sought to prepare families for the worst.

Miami-Dade Assistant Fire Chief Raide Jadallah says crews will stop using rescue dogs and listening devices but continue to search for people who are still missing.

Eight more bodies were recovered, bringing the death toll to 54, with 86 people unaccounted for.
