DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Finally, a plan is in place for residents affected by the crane collapse in old east Dallas to get their belongings.

As many as 300 people have been without vehicles and belongings since early last month, when heavy winds toppled a large crane onto the Elan City Lights apartments.

One person was killed.

Now the building has been deemed safe enough for professional movers to go in and package items for residents to retrieve.

Once the movers have retrieved the items from the building, they will be taken to a storage unit. A notice will be sent to residents telling them when and where they will be able to retrieve their belongings.
