No road traffic is being affected.

As of right now the barge is not impacting boat traffic.

Alexander Meza works near the Flagler waterfront and says he was startled by the sound of the collapse. "I was in the office and I heard a big bang, the noise a big noise and after that I go to the top of the building and I take a picture and I saw the crane fall down."

It’s unclear what caused the collapse.

Fire Rescue says it will take some time to move the crane off the barge.
