Construction cranes collapse in downtown Miami

A Florida man riding out Hurricane Irma in a nearby high-rise caught images of a massive construction crane that's collapsed.

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

Some two dozen other cranes in the city were still upright, Alfonso said.

So far no injuries related to the crash have been reported.

As Irma's outer bands barreled into South Florida Saturday, a high-rise hazard materialized in Downtown Miami. "Taking them is not something you can easily do".

With just a few minutes to go, Cabaye crossed the ball for a certain tap in for Dann but it was astonishingly headed wide of the goal.

City manager Daniel Alfonso says officials knew Irma could be a serious threat with about a week's notice, and that wasn't enough time to take all the cranes down. She told The Associated Press that from her 14th floor apartment, she saw the crane toppled over where it hit another building.

"The luffing crane can not rotate like a weather vane", Whiteman said. Miami officials said Tuesday in a tweet.

While over six and a half million people in Florida were told to evacuate in the face of the increasingly strong hurricane, the winds that have arrived there are now gauged at being in excess of 150 miles per hour.

Social media posts showed areas of downtown completely under water, with main roads resembling white-water rivers.

Meantime, officials from Broward County report that a man fell to his death from a nine-story building while boarding up windows.
