The ocean swell effects of Hurricane Sandy continue in Miami Beach through Thursday. Flooding during high-tide periods will occur and subside during low tide and should improve daily.

We are working on some temporary approaches to address the flooding that has been re-occurring in our city during high tides. We are also evaluating the impacted areas' systems to identify longer-term solutions. Over the next several cycles of high-tide, you will see an increased police presence and/or signage in advance of impacted intersections. Operational and public safety teams will close parking and/or travel lanes and plug drains when necessary. They will also try to pump out water when and where possible.

Avoid flooded intersections and allow extra time to travel. We are also increasing VMS messages about impacts to the MacArthur Causeway due to slower traffic at Fifth Street and Alton Road.

Some street lights and WiFi nodes are currently out due to electrical damage caused by the floods. We are working on expediting the repairs necessary.

Please note also that the high risk of rip currents continues on our beaches.

 You are encouraged to monitor the local news and weather. Also, take this time to review personal preparedness plans for hurricane season. Hurricane season ends November 30.

The National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood warning through 8:00 a.m. Monday for Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. There is a high risk of rip currents on Atlantic beaches and a High Surf Advisory is in effect for the Atlantic Coast due to large swells from Hurricane Sandy.

Flooding throughout Miami Beach will occur especially during high tide (8:06 p.m. tonight and 8:39 a.m. Monday). Operational teams will close parking and/or travel lanes when necessary. Avoid flooded areas. Allow extra time during Monday morning commutes.

Elevated water levels and high waves (>10FT) will lead to sea water over washing some roads along Atlantic beaches in the tri-county area. Major beach erosion will also continue. 

You are encouraged to monitor the local news and weather. Also, take this time to review personal preparedness plans for hurricane season. Hurricane season ends November 30. 


ALERT - Garage Flooding/Elevators Down

October 28. 2012

Due to the recent rains and high tide our garage is flooded.  Additionally the Elevators are currently off as water is in the Elevator Pits. The issue is caused by the  city Storm sewers and Catch Basins being full and water backing up from the system.  Once the Tide begins to lower then the Storm Sewers and Catch basins will begin to pump the water out.      

I have verified that all our Neighbor building are experiencing  the same flooding.

Will keep everyone informed.

Miami Beach Boardwalk Getting $1 Million Makeover

Miami Beach’s popular Boardwalk, occasionally featured in Hollywood films and TV shows, is getting a $1 million makeover.

The four-month project will include the removal of the elevated wooden boardwalk from 45th street near the Eden Roc Hotel all the way north to 47th street where it will be replaced with at-grade concrete pavement.
