Although the forecast does not suggest a storm surge, some have asked if they are available. Tonight from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm (or earlier if we run out of sand) sandbags will be
available at the Public Works Yard, located at 451 Dade Boulevard (between Beach High and Fire Station Two).
While we recommend keeping your sandbags for the remainder of hurricane season, if you can't store them please dispose of them like bulk waste which the City collects (and do
pour them on the beach or in any drains).
Vehicles in City Garages
City garages remain open for those who would like to park their cars.
Residents will have until Tuesday, September 3rd at 12:00 p.m. to remove their cars from City garages free of charge.
Garages will return to normal operations at noon on Tuesday, depending on weather conditions.
The City parking garage at Fifth Street and Alton Road will
open for free residential parking and will continue operating as normal.
Parks and Beaches
City parks will have no active programming starting tomorrow and City Parks facilities will be closed tomorrow.
Wave heights and currents typically increase before a storm makes landfall and even the best swimmers can fall victim to the strong waves and rip currents.
Once we experience tropical storm force winds, no lifeguards will be on the beaches.
We recommend staying off the beach.
The pumps and generators we have deployed will remain through the weekend given the expectation that there will be some flooding due to King Tide and expected rainfalls.
Report flooding in the City of Miami Beach eGov app or call 305.673.7625.
Bulk Pick-up Information
Please do not put out any garbage - there is no bulk trash pick up tomorrow. Tropical force winds can convert trash into projectiles. Pick up will resume on Tuesday, weather permitting.
Bridges and Traffic
All bridges in our City are locked in the down position.

The City of Miami Beach trolley service will be discontinued if the winds reach Tropical Storm force speed.
