Authorities in Miami have also confirmed that two cranes have collapsed into buildings due to the strong winds.
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.
According to city officials, it would have taken about two weeks to move the cranes and there wasn't enough time. "The top portion that most people see is broken in half". "In the future there should be an easy way to bring them down in events like this one".
Despite that, there was widespread relief that the storm surge triggered by Hurricane Irma, which swamped the city's business district, had not caused the catastrophic damage that had been predicted by meteorologists.
