Milanos on the Lake
Region: NSW – Pelican (Hunter Region)
Description: The two storey building in the Pelican marina in NSW’s Hunter region, partially collapsed when part of the marina gave way. The building housed some apartments, offices and a popular seafood restaurant.
At the time of the collapse, there were two occupants in the building who felt the movement and were forced to evacuate quickly. Emergency services were called to the scene at 9.50am, where part of the pier had collapsed and a portion of the building had gone into the water.
An exclusion zone was required to be set us around the restaurant, gas and energy points needing to be secured. Floating booms were placed in the water to ensure pollutants didn’t spread further in the waterway and the structure was demolished.
