It is expected that severe weather conditions will continue into the evening hours. Therefore, Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez has issued a curfew for Miami-Dade County for personnel to begin damage assessment and clearing of roadways.

Status Update:

  • Residents are to remain inside with all doors and windows closed.
