Remove All Yard Decor
Remove all yard furniture and decor, including campaign signs, which is necessary to prevent projectiles during the hurricane from affecting your home or neighbor's home. The city is encouraging residents to take down these items now and only place them back after the storm has passed.
Store at least 1 gallon of water per person per day in sterilized sealable containers for drinking and cooking. Save enough water for 7-10 days.
Store Your Vehicle in City Garages
will open for residents to park free of cost during the storm, with the exception of the City Hall garage. More information is coming soon on when the City will open garages.
Sandbags are available at local hardware stores, and it is prohibited to take sand from our beaches when preparing for the storm. The sand and dunes are the city's first line of defense against storm surge. After the storm, do not empty sand into beaches or drains.
Register Vulnerable Populations
If you or someone you know requires skilled nursing care, has medical equipment that relies on electricity, needs assistance with daily living, or may need assistance evacuating from
disaster, it is recommended that you register them with the Miami-Dade County Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program.
For a safer and more comfortable location during the storm, the city recommends residents find shelter with family and friends on the mainland. Taking into consideration the high volume of residents and additional low-lying areas evacuating, traffic congestion is expected. Miami-Dade County is expected to open evacuation shelters soon for those who are unable to make necessary accommodations.
