Glass panels plunged from a high-rise building in Miami on Sunday, a clear sign of looming dangers after the brunt of Hurricane Irma slammed into South Florida.

At 85 stories tall, the building, called the Panorama Tower, is planned to be the city’s tallest building. Video showed six-foot glass panels falling from the side of the building, expected to be 843 feet tall, and crashing to the ground below.

The building’s construction was expected to be completed by the end of this year, according to the Miami New Times — but that was before Hurricane Irma struck Florida.

The building’s falling glass panels were far from the only destruction Irma left inside the city.

The City of Miami joked on Twitter that it “Looks like #Irma made it snow in #Miami,” with a photo of white material covering the street. The tweet concludes: “Actually it’s insulation from a high rise under construction.”

Additionally, three cranes reportedly collapsed Sunday: two in downtown Miami, and one in Fort Lauderdale.
