Miami's Tower Construction Cranes Pose 'Potential Danger' During Hurricane

Miami's Tower Construction Cranes Pose 'Potential Danger' During Hurricane

The storm was about 20 miles east-northest of Key West, and is capable of sustaining winds of 130 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center reported Sunday morning.

As Hurricane Irma continues to wreak havoc toward northern Florida, its floodwaters have inundated the streets of Miami, making the city completely unrecognizable.

Based on current projections, the affected branches are expected to reopen by Sunday.

Only a few contractors are certified to remove those cranes, and they would not have had enough time to move them out of harm's way even if they all were working at the same time in Miami to prepare for Irma, he said.

The Tampa skyline is pictured across Hillsborough Bay ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Irma in Tampa, Florida, U.S., September 10, 2017.

While people in the state anxiously watched the massive storm, Irma battered the northern Caribbean, killing at least six people and leaving thousands homeless after destroying buildings and uprooting trees.

"We've got to follow our protocol", he said. She had just spray painted "We're Open Irma" on the plywood covering the bar's windows, covering the same defiant statement about "Wilma" in 2005.

"The Miami Police Department is out here today to see how many folks we can get off the street due to Hurricane Irma".

The European court obliged Slovakia and Hungary to accept refugees
EU Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos noted that the judiciary is independent in all EU states in which there is rule of law. The UN's migration agency reports that 125,860 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea so far this year.

Vandeweghe continues American success at US Open
This time, she raced to a 4-0 lead against an obviously nervous opponent, then won the second set in even more lopsided fashion. Kanepi, who's missed nearly two years of play with plantar fasciitis, is playing her first Grand Slam since the 2015 US Open.

N. Korea Close to Long Range Missile Capability
Responding to a question, Mattis said North Korea could do something like that (nuclear test) on relatively short notice. In a rare move, South Korea's military released footage of its own missile tests that were conducted last week.

Though 180 kilometres from Irma's landfall in the Florida Keys, hurricane-force winds from the 400-mile-wide storm were being felt through the Miami area.

"It's not going to be that bad", she said.

"If I lived in Miami, I'd be outta there", said Mastropaolo.

"Hotels or motels in 168 $, you can't afford it", let go of one of them.

Two others died in a auto accident in Hardee County, Florida, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Stefani Travieso, 22, lives in a Miami neighbourhood that was badly damaged during Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

"If I wasn't pregnant, I'd be in the vehicle headed north with my dog and my husband", she said.
