Dade (Including Miami Beach) Issues Mandatory Evacuation Order For Hurricane Irma”

Miami-Dade County officials are preparing for significant damage from Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 hurricane now with 185 miles per hour sustained winds as it batters the northern Leeward Islands. After hurricane forecasts put Miami square in the center of Hurricane Irma's path, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez late Wednesday ordered a mandatory evacuation of all residents of barrier islands including Miami Beach, as well as those living in low-lying areas along the South Dade County coastline. It affects about 100,000 residents.

Miami-Dade CountyWhere you are located in the Storm Surge Planning Zone determines when or if you have to evacuate.

To accomodate those who have no where else to go, four shelters were opened on Wednesday and four more will open on Thursday. Miami-Dade's schools chief canceled classes Thursday and Friday, and most governments and colleges announced similar shutdown plans for an already shortened holiday week. If winds reach that high, trash pick up, public transportation and operations at Miami International Airport will stop.

Those who have boats in marinas, are asked to secure their boats as soon as they can. The Mayor said, "Significant weakening is not expected".

Local 10 News reporter Neki Mohan was at the hurricane shelter at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition early Thursday as only a few people were resting there.

Residents are urged to stay alert. "We will be taking some extraordinary actions to ensure that the residents of Miami-Dade County are safe", Gimenez said at an afternoon press briefing Tuesday. "I'm personally recommending to our residents that you consider leaving the city of Miami Beach in advance of the evacuation order that we anticipate will be coming from the county mayor", Levine said. Gastesi said, "Don't expect us to come get you".
