Additionally, each crane can take five or six days each to dismantle, and local news outlets say there are twenty to twenty-five construction cranes now erected in the downtown Miami area.
The crane's arm is now dangling over a high-rise under construction in downtown Miami.
According to reports from city officials, the crane fell on Biscayne Boulevard, located in the heart of downtown Miami.
The images of a crane toppled over a high rise flooded social media as Irma landed on the southern tip of Florida's coast September 10.

Comparing a storm with the lightest hurricane winds of 74 miles per hour to a hurricane with 148-mph winds, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says, "The 148 miles per hour hurricane (a category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale) may produce - on average - up to 250 times the damage of a minimal category 1 hurricane".
Maurice Pons, deputy director of the Miami building department, warned last week that roughly two dozen cranes were a serious threat to residents living next door. People also posted pictures of the cranes.
City officials said they were using geo-fencing, a 911 communication system, as well as social media, to contact residents in the area. But Irma is such a massive storm that tropical- and hurricane-force winds were lashing South Florida throughout Sunday. "We will have a crew over to secure the crane as soon as the weather permits".
Alfonso said there were no reported injuries or deaths so far from the storm.
