Stay safe- avoid driving through or coming in contact with flood waters. Six inches of fast flowing water can knock you off your feet and less than a meter of water can float car. Flood water can be contaminated with sewage or other pollutants. There could also be hazards below the surface, like debris, that you cannot see. Make sure you are tuned into Miami Beach social media and local weather alerts.

Be Smart if You See Flood Waters!
