King Tide Season

King tide season is here! September king tides are expected to continue through Tuesday, September 13.
When king tides rise to an elevation higher than the adjacent land, flooding is often exhibited. Since Miami Beach is low-lying and near sea level, the city is particularly vulnerable to king tide flooding. Miami Beach also faces flood risk from storms, hurricanes and sea level rise and is implementing a holistic climate resilience strategy to address these flood risks.
Avoid floodwaters and report flooding to 305.673.7625 or

Drain and Cover
To prevent the bite and spread of disease by mosquitoes, remember to drain and cover.
  • Flush water from water-bearing plants so they don't become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Disposing of excess water at least once a week disrupts the mosquitoes' life cycle, preventing mosquito egg deposits and killing existing larvae in the process.
  • Survey your garden and backyard, checking landscaping for current and future locations of standing water. Mosquitoes need as little as a bottle cap of water to reproduce, so every little bit counts.

  • Eliminate all sources of standing water by emptying potential water-holding yard items, including pots, buckets and wheelbarrows weekly. Make sure to drain items more frequently following rainfall.
