On Saturday it Rained, No it Poured, Patio Furniture in Miami
During the storms over the weekend patio furniture rained over Biscayne Boulevard and Downtown Miami. And we’re not talking one or two pieces, we’re talking entire patio sets picked up by the wind from condominium balconies along the Boulevard and strewn across the city, Museum Park, and Biscayne Bay bellow. YouTuber Eric C took two incredible videos from Marina Blue in Downtown Miami, recording furniture flying off of neighboring buildings to the street below. According to the New Times/Wunderground, the highest wind gust recorded in Miami on Saturday, the day the videos were taken, was 37 mph, but that was at Miami International Airport. Isolated wind gusts along Biscayne Boulevard may have been higher; as high as 55 or 60, which sounds plenty fast to pick up a plastic patio set.
Of course if Eric C had joined it, then it would be raining men, and that would be a sight. Hallelujah!
