Hurricane Irma

As we continue our recovery and cleanup efforts, please visit the Emergency website for the latest information on openings and closings in Miami-Dade County.


County transportation facilities and services shut down three hours before hurricane or tropical storm winds reach a sustained 39 miles per hour.

For Seaport and Airport passenger information, you should contact your local carrier or call 311 for the latest news about closings. Local law enforcement agencies will put out advisories regarding when roadways and bridges will be locked down.

Emergency Evacuation

Emergency Evacuation Bus Pick-Up Sites sign

If you live in an emergency evacuation zone and your only choice is an official evacuation center, Miami-Dade offers Emergency Evacuation Bus Pick-Up Sites by evacuation zone. To learn which of these are active during a particular storm, listen to local media, check the County's website, or call 311.


Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program

Lift-gate bus

Some registrants are eligible for transportation that's provided by County departments as part of the Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program. Lift-gate buses and other specialized transportation will pick up those registered and take them from their homes to their assigned facility. To find out more about this service, call 311.


Boat & Marine


As you prepare for hurricane season, don't forget to secure your boat. Also remember that you should never try and ride out a hurricane in your boat. Once evacuations have started off the barrier islands, Intercoastal Waterway bridges will only be opened infrequently until lockdown.
