(FOX NEWS) – At least one crane collapsed Sunday morning in Miami as Hurricane Irma’s powerful winds lashed southern Florida, and officials warn there could be more such incidents given the area’s building boom and the intensifying conditions.

The crane came crashing down in downtown Miami next to the federal prison in front of the courthouse, WSVN reported.

Strong wind gusts ravaging the city could cause more cranes to collapse as Irma marches up the state’s west coast.

“A tower crane has collapsed on top of a high rise under construction at 300 Biscayne Blvd. AVOID THE AREA!!” the city of Miami reported.
