A contractor’s crane landed on several homes on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 resulting in power outages and a broken water main for 52 homes in East Lauderhill. As of today, the crane has been removed and water has been restored to all the affected homes. Power has been restored to all the homes with the exception of the two homes that were most directly in the crane’s path.
