Wind topples construction site in Peru

Posted by wlpo on May 2, 2012

Hold on to your hats and iron frame structures…strong winds have toppled the red iron base frame of an expansion project at Eakas Corporation in Peru.

Plant Manager Jeff Wagner says it happened at 12:45pm Wednesday.  Luckily, he says construction workers were on their lunch break and nobody was hurt.

Wagner says the 400 foot by 100 foot addition is for a new plating line.  Vissering Construction of Streator is the contractor.  Work began in mid-March.  Wagner isn’t sure how much this will set them back.
