Two construction cranes have toppled due to Irma’s hurricane force winds.
The first went down at the recently topped off Vice, a 31-story rental tower.
A second has gone down in Edgewater. Video posted on Social Media appears to show it at the 53-story Gran Paraiso, which had reached the 49th level as of August 7.

other cranes have been unlocked and allowed to spin freely, in order to prevent toppling:
