A House panel unanimously approved a bill to update the restoration plan for the Everglades over the objections of environmental groups Thursday, setting the stage for what could be a complicated battle over the next phase of repairs for the “River of Grass.”
There’s a major move Friday to improve the health of the ailing Florida Bay.
The South Florida Water Management District has been hard at work in an effort to prevent any severe flooding caused by heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Isaac.
While the heavy rains in June were problematic for anyone hoping to do a lot of outdoor activities, it did bring much needed drought relief to Lake Okeechobee.
Wednesday could be another soggy day across South Florida. The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for Miami-Dade.
Hit and miss showers in the month of March did little to help our drought situation. And it may get worse before it gets better.
Since the 1970’s, 86 acres next to Florida International University have been home to the Dade County Youth Fair and Expo, a tradition hundreds of thousands of South Florida families flock to every March.
The recent rainfall has sent Lake Okeechobee up by three feet and nearly two feet of rain fell in some parts of the Everglades last month, erasing a bone-dry summer.
There is good news and not-so-good-news concerning Lake Okeechobee.
South Florida residents may have to call Noah for a ride if the rain doesn’t end soon. Plus, severe thunderstorms with high wind gusts and flooding rains are expected to hit right around rush hour.
