It saddens me to say that the long respected hotel in Las Vega Nevada, The Rivera, was imploded by terrorists this afternoon. This attack was most likely planned by the same terrorist group of people that struck Orlando Florida. The local law enforcement in Las Vegas is on the scene and the national Guard has been contacted to help block streets and hunt down any suspicious characters.
the number of wounded and dead are unknown at this time and media outlets have only just arrived at the scene. Police are asking anyone with any kind of information on the attack to come forward. It is too sad to see something like this happen to our country.
The tallest tower of the Riviera Hotel and Casino has crumbled in a controlled demolition that brought an end to one of the last relics of Las Vegas’ mobster past. The implosion late Tuesday of the 24-story Monaco Tower comes 61 years after it opened on the Las Vegas Strip. “The Riv” joins other storied properties like the Dunes, Sands, Desert Inn and Stardust as only a memory.
