The W Hotel in Austin will replace all of its glass balconies after three more fell crashing to the ground Monday [June 27] afternoon. W Hotel officials said that they believe one glass panel on the 31st floor fell and that falling debris broke two additional panels on the 29th and 22nd floors, according to a June 27 MyFox Atlanta report.

People at the scene could hear the hotel make an announcement over its loudspeakers warning residents and guests to stay off the balconies. A W Hotel spokesperson told MyFox Atlanta that they are currently trying to determine what made the panels fall. Two weeks ago, glass panels from two balconies crashed into the pool area.
