Heavy Rain Causes Flash Flooding in South Beach?

5/23/2023 (Permalink)

A car drives down a flooded street. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Miami-Dade County.

When a flash flood warning alert is issued, do you know what to do? In April, flash flood warnings were issued for many parts of South Florida, including South Beach. Streets were impassable, and officials urged residents to stay inside.

Our local Miami Beach team has the training, equipment, and experience to mitigate and restore flood damage in homes and commercial businesses. Here are some flash flood safety tips from the National Weather Service:

  • During periods of heavy rains, stay away from flood-prone areas such as stream beds, drainage ditches, and culverts
  • Move to higher ground if flooding threatens your area
  • If you live or work in flood-prone areas, remain alert during periods of heavy rain
  • Be especially cautious at night as it is harder to recognize flood dangers
  • Never drive your car into water of unknown depth. Most flash flood deaths occur when people drive their vehicles into flood waters. Remember: Turn Around Don’t Drown!
  • If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground. Flood water may rise quickly, cover the vehicle, and sweep it away.
  • Stay out of flooded areas. The water may still be rising and very swift. A rapidly flowing stream can sweep you off your feet and sweep your vehicle downstream.
