Hurricane Irma forces Miami woman to deliver her own baby

A crane atop a building under construction appears after it collapsed as Hurricane Irma passes by Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in downtown Miami

Alfonso said city officials contacted the management of nearby residential buildings and called residents there by using a reverse 911 system to urge them to stay away from their windows in case shards of the cranes are picked up by the wind.

"We are experiencing some room damage and got a little leak from one of my seven windows", the 41-year-old realtor said.

The cranes' arms had to remain loose and could not be tied down, said Maurice Pons, deputy director of the building department, in the statement.

The two buildings are across the street from the Gran Paraiso construction site where a crane collapsed during Hurricane Irma and that crane has yet to be secured.

Hospitals throughout South Florida had pregnant women ride out the hurricane.

The crane north of the buildings snapped and is now dangling in the air. Attempts to reach Property Markets Group offices in NY and Miami were unsuccessful.

The city had been in touch with Perez but the state of Florida and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) had jurisdiction over the cranes, Alfonso said.

Two high-rise construction cranes toppled over in downtown Miami on Sunday as intense gusts from Hurricane Irma lashed the city.

Forecasters project Irma will meander its way toward Florida's western coast off Fort Myers through the day Sunday, as the hurricane's eye wall reaches the Tampa Bay area.

It warned that the cranes had to be unpinned, so that their horizontal booms could rotate on their support columns like a weather vane.

The storm made landfall over the Florida Keys on Sunday with winds reaching 130 miles per hour and was expected to pass over the state's west coast while raking the rest of Florida with its outer bands.
