The police and building inspectors showed up quickly, and within a few hours the rubble had been cleared away. The area surrounding the building has been taped off for safety.
The apartment above Thai on Clark, as well as the restaurant, look to be in good condition, although the restaurant awning took a hit. If you plan on going to Thai on Clark anytime soon, we suggest calling first to make sure they are open. We haven't heard of any injuries, either inside or outside the building.
Thank you to reader Bill Biederman for the photo.
Here's what the upper facade looked liked prior to the collapse:
