Miami hospitals prepare for surge in births during Hurricane Irma

A crane has reportedly cracked in downtown Miami as Hurricane Irma moves through the city.

Vice Chairman of Coastal Construction Dan Whiteman said he has 12 cranes in the Miami area, which are created to spin like weather vanes to ensure stability, according to an Associated Press report.

According to reports from city officials, the crane fell on Biscayne Boulevard, located in the heart of downtown Miami.

People also posted pictures of the cranes. A half-million homes were without power in Miami-Dade County and heavy flooding was a problem in some areas.

"The luffing crane can not rotate like a weather vane", Whiteman said. The city even welcomed its first hurricane baby, when a mother delivered a girl in her home in Little Haiti with coaching from emergency responders over the phone.

"Tomorrow we'll assess the damage and try to get the engineering part of it corrected", Deputy Building Director Maurice Pons said.
