saac Advisory #5: Update Miami-Dade County Updates Regarding Tropical Storm Isaac


(Miami-Dade County, FL) --

The Miami-Dade County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) continues to monitor Tropical Storm Isaac.

Residents are urged to continue monitoring the storm and complete their personal hurricane preparations. Based on its current track, tropical storm force winds (TSFW) from Isaac are expected to begin impacting South Florida as early as tomorrow morning.

Miami-Dade County is issuing an evacuation order for the following areas: mobile home parks, unsafe structures and low-lying areas that are prone to flooding.
Miami-Dade County will be opening three shelters to assist those residents who need them.
In North Dade, the shelter is located at Dr. Michael Krop Senior High School, 1410 northeast 215th street (Please note that this shelter is the only pet-friendly shelter of the three.)
In Central Dade, the shelter is located at Booker T. Washington Senior High School, 1200 NW 6th Avenue.
In South Dade, the shelter is located at Robert Morgan Senior High School, 18180 SW 122nd Avenue.
All three shelters are accessible to persons with disabilities and service animals.
Gather your hurricane supplies now if you have not already done so. You should have three days worth of supplies, such as non-perishable food and water, for each person in your household.
You should begin putting up your hurricane shutters now.
Fill your vehicle’s gas tank with gasoline. If you fill extra gas containers with gasoline, make sure you store them in a safe area in your home.
Your home, yard and construction debris should be properly secured. Any objects that hurricane winds could blow about should be tied down or brought indoors (garbage cans, patio furniture, garden tools, toys, etc.).
Do not trim trees or shrubs at this time. Solid Waste has discontinued trash and recycling pick-ups until further notice.
Visitors staying in Miami-Dade County should communicate with their hotel management for information.
Miami International Airport remains open but airlines may cancel flights. Travelers should contact their airline carrier to confirm flight information.
PortMiami is scheduled to close at 11:00 p.m. tonight. Travelers should check with their cruise lines for further information.
Metrorail, metrobus and metromover will continue to operate until further notice.
Boats and watercraft should be secured today.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Catholic schools throughout the County will be closed on Monday.
FIU, Miami-Dade College and the University of Miami will also be closed on Monday.
All non-essential County employees are to stay home on Monday.
The Museum of Science will be open through today, and will be closed tomorrow.

All residents are urged to stay tuned to radio and television broadcasts for further details of the storm movement. Miami-Dade County officials are closely monitoring the situation and will issue further advisories as they become necessary.

The EOC continues to operate at a Level 2, full activation status. Under a Level 2 activation, the EOC is staffed with emergency support personnel to ensure we support all preparatory actions.
