Keeping Our Residents Safe and Informed: Hurricane Irma Updates

Mayor's Local Emergency Declaration - Hurricane Irma

Updated 09/05/2017 08:00 PM:

In South Florida, the question is not if we will experience a hit from a hurricane, but when. As a result, the City of Miami Gardens spends a significant amount of time and resources to ensure its residents are ready to weather the storm.

Though the City is working hard to keep you safe, it is important for each and every member of our community to diligently prepare themselves and their families for a storm by developing a Personal Hurricane Plan (PHP). To assist you with this, we have prepared the City of Miami Gardens 2017 Hurricane Guide to provide you with the information you need to successfully plan and prepare for a hurricane.
