[ARCHIVED] Miami-Dade County Weather Alerts
Miami-Dade County Emergency Management receives weather notifications from the National Weather Service and provides flood warning and evacuation information to the Village of Palmetto Bay via Miami-Dade Alerts: https://www.miamidade.gov/alerts . You can also tune into local radio or television stations or NOAA weather radio frequencies (162.55 or 162.500 in Spanish). Purchase a Weather Alert Radio for your home and workplace to stay informed of changing conditions.
If your property is in imminent danger of flooding, turn off the power in your house, including propane gas tanks and lines. Teach family members how and when to turn off gas, electricity, and water. If you lose power, turn off all major appliances. Use a flashlight to inspect for damage. Do not smoke or use candles, lanterns, or open flames unless you know that the gas has been turned off and the area has been ventilated. Avoid low-lying areas. Seek shelter in the highest areas possible. Do not walk or drive through flowing or standing water. Avoid downed power lines. Develop an evacuation plan for your family. Designate a place where your family will meet after an evacuation order is issued.
