SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A glass window on a high rise building on Mission Street between Main and Fremont cracked on Tuesday, resulting in street closures in the area. The incident has now been resolved, according to the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management.
Earlier, the SF Department of Emergency Services had asked people to avoid the area of Mission Street between Main and Fremont streets due to shattered glass. Emergency crews were on the scene, the department tweeted.
People are still being advised to expect residual traffic delays, consider alternate routes and allow for additional travel time. According to the San Francisco Fire Department, a window on the 30th floor of 350 Mission Street cracked. No glass fell and the window was secured by building engineers.
The address given by SFFD matches that of Salesforce East, a 30-story high rise built in 2015.
There have been several incidents in recent weeks of glass from high-rise buildings in SF cracking and falling to the street below. On Monday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed issued an emergency declaration due to recent incidents of broken windows in high rises.
In anticipation of more weather-related incidents, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management has activated the San Franciso Emergency Operations Center to monitor storm impacts and deploy coordinated resources to the highest need areas.
