South Beach Homes Flooded by Storm Surge?

A sign reading “flood zone ahead” is seen against storm clouds in the background. We are trained and certified to restore storm damage in Miami-Dade County.

During the Atlantic hurricane season, coastal communities in Miami-Dade County are susceptible to storm surge flooding. Storm surge flooding occurs when powerful, hurricane-force winds blow water onto the shores, flooding homes and commercial businesses in South Beach and other coastal areas. Our local Miami Beach team uses powerful, industrial-grade water extraction equipment capable of pulling hundreds of thousands of gallons of water up quickly, saving our customers time and money in many flooding emergencies.

The Miami-Dade County website explains that storm surge is the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. The website encourages residents to know their storm surge planning zone. Depending on the hurricane's track and projected storm surge, each zone will be evacuated when a hurricane is identified.

Flood zones are areas mapped by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for use in the National Flood Insurance Program. Each flood zone designation, represented by a letter or letters, tells homeowners exactly what the risk is for flooding at their property over a period of years, regardless of the cause. By law, all homes in high-risk zones carrying a mortgage must be covered by flood insurance.
