Residents in Buildings Near Miami Crane Collapse Being Evacuated

The Category 4 storm is expected to travel up the state's west coast, according to The New York Times, and is bringing winds of 130 miles per hour.

In the days before Irma hit a Florida mum gave birth to her baby just before the monster storm hit. At least two cranes collapsed and a roof blew off a home in nearby neighborhoods.

That collapse at the Related property came hours after heavy winds snapped the boom of another crane erected on top of a Miami apartment building under construction.

Police and fire rescue were evacuating residents from the east side of a building at 479 Northeast 30th Street and the entire building at 505 Northeast 30th Street, officials said.

One expert, Dr Shannon Clark, an associate professor in the division of maternal fetal medicine at University of Texas said that the reason for the increased births is inconclusive, though it could have something to do with the low barometric pressure that comes with a hurricane.

He added that the neighboring commercial boulevard of Lincoln Road, a tourist epicenter, was flooded with about a foot (30 centimeters) of water.
