Forecasters say residents should limit their outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day and stay well-hydrated.

TROPICAL STORM ALEX

The upcoming heatwave comes as the first tropical storm of the year, flooding parts of South Florida over the weekend.

Parts of Florida experienced severe flooding and rainy weather as Tropical Storm Alex swept through the state and headed toward Bermuda.

Hours after the storm passed, Miami-Dade County streets were flooded with water and many cars were stranded.

There have been several reports of flooded cars that have had to be towed from their location.

First responders deployed flood rescue vehicles to bring people stranded in the water to safety.

The storm dropped 12 inches of rain on downtown Miami and over 9.5 inches on South Miami.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said the storm tested the system of drainage pumps recently installed in the city, US News reports.

“We moved the water away pretty quickly, but of course it was really challenging in some areas,” said Gelber.

“There were problems getting through on some roads, one of the main arteries was impassable, but by and large the water is draining.”

Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine-Cava also said the flooding was due to storm drains not working properly, causing water to come back up the drains.

National Hurricane Center forecasters said Sunday morning Alex would experience maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and moving northeast at 14 mph.
