We are closely monitoring Hurricane Irene that could be a potential threat to our area this week. At this time, all Miami Beach services continue normal operations. All residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to check their hurricane preparedness kits, review their family emergency plans; and remain informed.
As a reminder, Miami Beach is an evacuation zone, as such plan in advance where you will stay, how you will get there, and what supplies you will take in case an evacuation is issued. Also, give yourself ample time to get to a safe area.
You are encouraged to monitor the local news and weather. For information on how to prepare for a hurricane:
