Heavy Showers Cause Flooding Across Miami-Dade

Friday morning pushed a tremendous amount of heavy rain across Miami-Dade county, with a widespread 2 to 4” reported. A Flood Advisory was issued for east central Miami-Dade County until 12:45 p.m.

Miami International Airport led the reports with nearly 5” of rain. Locally, heavy rain made for a tough early commute and provided some inconvenient street flooding.

In Hialeah, the heavy rain was blamed for a partial roof collapse that injured a 10-month baby.

The deluge also caused some trouble near Miami International Airport after several vehicles got stuck due to heavy flooding. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called out to help people who were unable to get out of their vehicles. The incident happened just before 10 a.m. on Waterford Way in the area of Blue Lagoon.

Heavy flooding prompted Miami-Dade Fire Rescue to shut down Northwest 7th Street from 61 to 72 Avenue Friday morning.

By midday, rain showers had tapered off and forecasters expect to see a bit of sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the upper 80s.
