Two cranes collided Thursday evening on Bar Kochba Street in Herzliya as a result of the strong wind, and one of them collapsed. There were no casualties in the incident, but both cranes sustained heavy damage. Following the incident, the city engineer issued a stop-work order for the site.
"It all happened when there were dozens of workers on the construction site, and miraculously no workers were hurt," LaValle said. Attorney Israel Assal, legal advisor of the Forum for the Prevention of Work Accidents, argued that this was not the first accident involving cranes of the same company. "The string of serious accidents is inconsistent with the company's claims regarding crane safety."
In Ramat Gan, bins were documented flying in the air due to the weather. At the same time, it rained lightly in Hadera and strong winds were recorded. In Tel Aviv, a 68-year-old man was lightly injured when a tree collapsed on Yekutiel Adam Street earlier today. An MDA team that arrived at the scene gave him medical treatment while he was conscious. In Ashdod, the winds led to delays in entering the Peoples and Flavors festival, and in Eilat a huge sandstorm was observed.
