3/21/24 - Upcoming Storms

Greetings Neighbors, It's important to stay informed about the upcoming weather forecast for our area. According to the latest reports, we anticipate receiving 3-5 inches of rain over the next few days, accompanied by wind gusts reaching speeds of 30-40 miles per hour. While these conditions may cause concern, it's worth noting that our community has a history of handling such weather patterns well.

Typically, we can manage rainfall of up to 6 inches or more during a storm, depending on its intensity. Similarly, periodic wind gusts up to 50mph usually don't pose signifaicant issues. However, it's essential to remain vigilant and prepared. Our approach to weather events involves proactive preparation and vigilant monitoring.

Firstly, we focus on preparation by ensuring our storm drains are clear to minimize potential flooding. Secondly, we maintain constant communication with the Police Department, who provide real-time updates on any issues or hazards they observe on the ground. Our Manager coordinates with relevant authorities 24/7 to deploy necessary resources promptly, with Public Works standing by for assistance.

Additionally, our Manager stays in close contact with the Mayor to address any current or potential issues that may arise. Depending on the severity of the forecasted storm, Public Works and our Manager may be deployed to specific areas within Biscayne Park to handle any emergent situations effectively.
