HURRICANE IRMA ADVISORY #25


BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Hurricane Irma continues to impact all of South Florida, with storm surge, high winds, heavy rains and isolated tornadoes. Broward County is under a Hurricane Warning, Tornado Watch and an area Flood Warning. Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief warned residents that the worst is yet to come.

Residents should expect periodic wind gusts over 80 mph starting by Noon and continuing through the afternoon. Broward's storm surge is expected to be 2-3 feet, peaking on Sunday afternoon.

Broward County has already had 4-8" of rain, and an additional 4-8" is expected. Flooded streets, especially those next to canals, create treacherous conditions for drivers. During the next few hours, emergency response time may be impacted by weather conditions.

"This is a serious, still life-threatening event," said Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief. "Our community has coastal areas and low-lying areas that are going to be subject to widespread flooding, on top of extensive wind damage. Please don't let down your guard. All residents should observe the countywide curfew, which has been put into place to protect life and property."

"We encourage our friends at risk across Florida, especially in the Keys and on the West Coast to remain strong. Together, we will bring Florida back from this disaster better than ever," said Sharief.
