Crane Collapses As Hurricane Irma Hits Downtown Miami

According to the resident, the crane is on top of the PMG building that is now under construction.

Now, we have seen that one has cracked and fallen in the downtown area.

"The arm's counterbalance is very heavy and poses a potential danger if the crane collapses". The equipment was created to withstand winds up to 145 miles per hour (233 kph), city officials said.

The deputy director of Miami's building department, Maurice Pons, advised anyone living in a building next to a construction crane to leave. "The winds are so strong that it's not known what will happen".

A crew will be dispatched to secure the crane as soon as weather conditions improve, developer Ryan Shear, a principal of Property Markets Group, said in an emailed statement.

Dan Whiteman, vice chairman Coastal Construction, said he has 12 cranes in the Miami area.

"The luffing crane can not rotate like a weather vane", Whiteman said.

A tornado could have ripped the crane loose, Whiteman said.

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.

The cranes were thought to be able to withstand the direct hit of a Category 4 hurricane, however, Irma's winds in Miami are just at the Category 1 level.

Kate Hale, Miami-Dade's emergency management chief says by almost every measure, Irma looks far worse.

"You could have a building built to code, but if the two next to it are knocked over by storm surge into your building, you could suffer loss as well", Castaldi said.
