Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

In a matter of just six to eight hours, the City of Fort Lauderdale was soaked with more than 25 inches of rain - making it one of the highest figures for major U.S. cities over a 24-hour period. With this rapid and intensifying shift in the climate, one-day downpours have been becoming more frequent and of higher magnitude in the last few decades, according to experts, and will continue to increase further in the years ahead. These instances of intense rainfall combined with sea level rise along the Florida coast have created a sense of urgency among South Floridians, who recognize the considerable threats that climate change presents. To address these risks, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has partnered with our regional partners in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties to create plans to address current and future issues of extreme weather, sea-level rise, and storm surge. The Broward MPO has made resiliency a major component of its transportation decision-making process in its efforts to tackle the climate change problem. For those experiencing impacts of flooding, below are links to available resources and information.
