Peak Hurricane Season Brings Rain Showers, Storms, and Humid Weather to Miami Shores.
The peak hurricane season months are August, September, and October. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that over the last 10 years, flooding from tropical storm rainfall was the single deadliest hazard. Now, the NOAA Weather Prediction Center is extending its Excessive Rainfall Outlook an additional two days, providing forecasts five days in advance to identify areas at risk for flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall.
Our local Miami Beach team responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Miami Shores and wants everyone to stay safe in the event of flash flooding. Here are some 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.
- 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.
- 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.
