Yesterday's Herald Building Demo Looked Incredibly Unsafe

New, 1 comment

This is one of those situations where the visual evidence should be presented without much added argument, because we do not yet have corroborating evidence, and frankly because it speaks for itself. The Miami Herald recorded yesterday's surprise demolition of the old Miami Herald Building by Genting, its new owners (apparently the Herald found out about it not from Genting but from one of the construction teams that wanted press coverage). Visible in that video recording are (A) people running for it, and (B) a Metromover car gliding on its tracks through the giant cloud of dust as it was still spreading through the city. WTF? That is all, for now.

This whole thing happened right next to the MacArthur Causeway, during rush hour, as far as we know. Oh, and the dust plumes reached all the way to Biscayne Boulevard.

Here's the video, again, for your viewing pleasure:
