Hurricane Ian has strengthened to a Major Category 3 Hurricane.
FLOOD WATCH ISSUED FOR SOUTH FLORIDA
Much of South Florida remains at risk from significant impacts. A Tropical Storm watch has now been issued for all of Palm Beach County and interior Broward and Miami-Dade counties. South Florida remains on the edge of the cone and impacts from the storm can extend well beyond it. Per the National Weather Service, all tropical threats are still possible for South Florida including damaging wind, storm surge and heavy rainfall.
The City continues to prepare for any impacts from Hurricane Ian. All lift stations are working, All City Services are on their regular schedule until further notice. Parks will close as needed due to storm impact.
There is also a possibility of compound flooding as we are also expecting King Tide over the next few days as well. Based on the rain and King Tides, we can expect there will be some flooding throughout the City.
There is no sand bag distribution scheduled. Residents are reminded it is illegal to remove sand from the beach. Please plan ahead and visit your local home improvement store for bags and sand or a suitable alternative.
