Two huge cranes atop Miami highrises collapse in Irma's winds

Miami Beach rescue crews no longer responding to calls

"This particular crane, some of it was taken down", Jorge Perez, chief executive of The Related Group, Miami's largest developer, said by telephone.

"We're telling people that if you live by a construction site you should evacuate", Alyce Robertson, executive director of the Miami Downtown Development Authority, said on Thursday.

Abby Ape's 14th-floor apartment has a view of the toppled crane.

Garcia said, "She delivered the placenta, also".

At this point Hurricane Irma was a Category 4 storm, and its powerful winds were making it almost impossible for paramedics and fire crews to respond to the dozens of calls they were receiving. The call from the woman in labor was not one of them.

Paramedics weren't able to reach her because of the risky conditions, including strong winds.

The city and surrounding areas were under a tornado watch September 10.

And because of this, games that focus on history, geography, or other elements of the real world can now almost be educational. It may sound somewhat hard to believe, but there have already been artistic exhibitions for people’s Tilt Brush designs.

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.

Photos posted on social media showed a giant crane had struck the roof of a building in an area where skyscrapers overlooking the ocean are constantly coming up. "But for the grace of God, that (collapse) could be me".

City officials last week said that the cranes could not be tied down or moved.

Tower cranes can rise hundreds of feet into the air on steel frameworks, and are used to lift steel, concrete, heavy construction equipment and other building materials.

On Monday morning, Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm, with winds of 70 miles per hour (110 kph), just below hurricane force.

In the first case, which happened Sunday morning, the arm of the crane also collapsed, falling onto the top level of the building. Parts of the American Airlines Arena, home to the NBA's the Miami Heat, have experienced some exterior damages.
