MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – Miami Beach residents are dealing with another round of flooding from high tides Thursday night.
Indian Creek Drive was shut down southbound at 41st Street after the road was inundated at around 6 p.m.
The closure caused delays for many drivers who got stuck in traffic and had to reroute around the water.
“Took us an extra 30 minutes more than expected,” said Michael Lapointe. “It’s an inconvenience.”
Residents dealing with the soggy street and sidewalks say the city’s storm water pump project isn’t getting the job done.
“It happens all the time when it’s high tide,” said Miami Beach resident Laura Swanson. “It’s a shame that the drainage system isn’t any better.”
A flood advisory is in effect through Friday morning. High tide is at 6:39 am.
Miami Beach has called in extra officers to help with traffic control of the roads flood again.
