300 AM EDT Tue May 26 2020

FLC011-086-260915-
/O.CON.KMFL.FA.Y.0046.000000T0000Z-200526T0915Z/

Miami-Dade FL-Broward FL-
300 AM EDT Tue May 26 2020

...THE FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 515 AM EDT FOR NORTHERN
MIAMI-DADE AND SOUTHERN BROWARD COUNTIES...

At 300 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated light to locally moderate
rain persisting across the Flood Advisory area. While the heavy
rainfall has ended, flooding remains a threat around canals and
streams, highways, streets, and underpasses, as well as other
drainage areas and low lying spots. There is a small chance that
additional heavy showers develop during the pre-dawn hours, in which
case the flooding risk could increase once again.

Some locations that will experience the flooding risk include...
Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miramar and Davie.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of canals
and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well
as other drainage areas and low lying spots.
