Precaution: Extreme High Tides

Precaution: Extreme High Tides
Week of October 6 - 13
Seas Rise to Extreme Levels 
South Florida anticipates king (extreme) high tides higher than experienced last year according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). High tides occur in approximately 12-hour intervals. Any pockets of flooding should alleviate with the lowering of the tide.

In anticipation of these tides, newly installed storm pump stations are now operational at 10 and 14 streets with upgraded pumps at Sunset Harbour online early this week. Portable pumps and plugs are at other locations. 

These new storm water pumps are removing over 50,000 gallons of water per minute together based on estimates. This would mean that we are pumping the equivalent volume of three to four swimming pools of water each minute -- the pump stations work at less than 15 seconds to empty your swimming pool.

Miami Beach plans to install 58 new pump stations throughout the city over the next five years. In addition, dune restorations and public seawall improvements are on-going.

We encourage the public to report flooding via the Miami Beach e-Gov app.
