Construction cranes that the city of Miami thought could withstand the winds of Hurricane Irma are collapsing around the city.
Here is the chilling video of a construction crane collapsing and dangling from an unfinished high rise:

Irma is something that has not been seen in Florida perhaps in history. Two high rise construction cranes have fallen, and all city officials can do is warn people not to go near those areas, because first responders can’t get to the downed cranes.
After witnessing the damage that Hurricane Harvey caused in Texas, it is easy to become desensitized to the destruction, but what the country is witnessing is a historic run of natural disasters just weeks apart.
