Beersheva flour tower threatens to crumble

The tower of a Beersheva flour storage facility has started to lean on its side over the last few hours, threatening to topple over. Officials estimated that 45-meter high structure contains approximately 1,000 tons of wheat, and determined that it is leaning at a 30-degree angle. Firefighters and police have sealed off the area and evaculated workers in nearby factories for fear that the collapsing tower may endanger human lives and property.
