Hurricane season is upon us once again and will last through November 30th. The Village strongly urges residents to take a moment to review this information to better prepare for a hurricane or other severe weather emergency.
2021 Hurricane Readiness Guide
At the start of an active hurricane season, it's important to have a plan for you and your family. The Village Emergency Team would like to ensure that all residents receive as much information as possible to aid in the preparation for any upcoming storm. A tropical storm or hurricane can develop within hours threatening the area. During these months, special precautions need to be taken by everyone in the community. For example, landscaping personnel should be reminded to properly prune trees and shrubs in the coming weeks to help reduce the debris generated during a storm.
All residents are also encouraged to develop an evacuation plan before an emergency strikes. The Village is located within an EVACUATION ZONE. Should the Miami-Dade County Mayor issue an evacuation order, we encourage every resident to leave the Island and shelter in a safe location away from the forecasted hurricane path.
Keep in mind that every storm is unique and will impact areas differently. Being prepared is the key to a successful outcome.
Residents will receive periodic updates by email and through the One Call Now phone communication system informing everyone of current conditions and/or when services have been restored. You may also visit our Village website as well for up-to-date storm information. Please make sure the Village has your most up-to-date contact information.
Should you have any additional questions regarding hurricane preparedness, please contact Village Hall at 305-865-4121.
