Sandbags will continue to be distributed today, and tomorrow morning as some in our religious communities were unable to obtain them today. Even if you don't use the sandbags for this storm event, like all hurricane supplies it's a good idea to keep them for the remainder of hurricane season (November 30).
After the storm, please remember not to dispose of the sand on to our beaches or into storm drains.

ion is ordered, the order will be issued by Miami-Dade County.
Miami Beach is still experiencing minor flooding due to King Tides, and we expect Hurrica
ne Dorian will bring, at a minimum, heavy rainfall and possible storm surge. Accordingly, the City’s pumping systems; water, wastewater, and stormwater have been tested and readied for the storm.
The City is installing temporary pumps at 13 locations, and temporarily installing portable generators at 18 other locations to provide backup power to existing permanent pump stations. We nonetheless could see some flooding due to the combination of King Tides and Hurricane Dorian's significant rainfall and potential storm surge.
Some tips to remember before the storm:
- Locate your flood insurance policy to be ready in the case you may need to file a claim for damage.
- Protect your building with flood barriers like sand bags and flood panels.
- Elevate mechanical equipment and appliances, as able, if you anticipate that waters may enter areas such as your garage.
- Avoid parking your vehicle in low lying areas- move it to higher ground, such as a parking garage.
- Don’t litter. Keep public storm drains clear. Report issues to the Miami Beach e-gov app or call 305.604.CITY.
Report flooding in the City of Miami Beach eGov app or call 305.673.7625.
