SURFSIDE, Fla. (WXIX) - Ohio Task Force 1 will be back home on Thursday following more than a week of recovery and rescue work at the site of a collapsed condo in Florida.

The 80-member team, including several K9s, arrived in Surfside back on July 3.

As of Monday, 94 bodies have been recovered from the Champlain Towers South wreckage. There are still around 22 people unaccounted for, according to the Associated Press.

Ohio Task Force 1 members worked 12-hour shifts to help with the efforts.

“It is simply impossible for us, as a team, to express our thanks and gratitude for the support we have received from all over the Ohio region,” Phil Sinewe, public information officer, said. “The messages of support have been unwavering and vast in number. We thank all of you for your support of our team’s efforts.”
