New Orleans to explode huge unstable Hard Rock Hotel cranes ahead of storm

U.S. & World

NEW ORLEANS – The City of New Orleans has declared a State of Emergency due to potential tropical cyclone sixteen, and the partial hotel collapse.

This declaration allows the city to move forward at full speed, with the controlled demolition of the Hard Rock cranes.

A private memorial ceremony was held early Friday morning, for the families of the workers who remain trapped in building rubble.

The evacuation zone is growing as the demolition time nears.
