Crane Collapses in Miami due to Hurricane Irma Winds

Crane Collapses in Miami due to Hurricane Irma Winds

There's good news for the almost 100-thousand Miami Beach residents who evacuated before Hurricane Irma and are now itching to get home. An official said it's in a large development.

Separately, a video posted to Twitter showed Brickell Avenue, an upscale business and residential district near Miami Beach, was already being flooded out as Irma's fury rained down on the region.

This happened near NE 3rd Street and Biscayne Boulevard.

The city said anyone in buildings in the area facing the crane should "seek shelter" in the opposite side of the building or in a stairwell.

"These tower cranes are created to withstand winds up to 145 miles per hour, not a Category 5 Hurricane", the city said in a statement last week.

Lalu has also targeted his erstwhile alliance partner on the Srijan scam case. " Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi are responsible for the Srijan scam".

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will lead the investigation.

Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys on Sunday morning as a Category 4 storm. The ordinance passed in 2008 but legal challenges from construction and crane groups resulted in the ordenence being taken off the books.

There was a concern the cranes could collapse.

A second crane collapsed later Sunday and was dangling from an unfinished high rise on Northeast 30th Terrace, reported NBC Miami. "It can either go down and crush whatever is beneath it or fall sideways and maybe damage an adjacent building".
