The National Weather Service and NOAA continually monitor local weather conditions. If major flooding is anticipated within the City, NOAA will broadcast notices like Flood Warning, Urban Flood Advisory or Flash Flood Warning Notices. These notices will be broadcast through television and radio stations such as TV channels 4, 7 and 10, and radio stations such as WIOD (610 a.m.) and Big 105.9 (FM).
These notices are intended to help residents prepare for the possibility of severe flooding in the neighborhood. The City recommends that residents and businesses tune in to these broadcasts to prepare for flooding when it occurs.
Warning times for these events may be as long as five days for hurricanes, down to one to two hours notice for flash floods and urban advisories. The key is to keep aware of these notices when watching, listening to or reading the various media sources.
