The City is asking residents to remove any trash that has not been picked up from the street, please bring it inside or find a way to secure it. Loose debris and trash will become dangerous projectile during hurricane force winds.
An additional Pet Friendly Shelter will open at 1 PM at Everglades High School,17100 SW 48 Court, Miramar. However, any pet owner who was pre-registered at Millennium Middle School in Tamarac should still take their pet to that shelter. Pet owners are required to have their dog or cat in a crate or carrier. Please remember to pack an emergency supply kit with food, water, pet bowls, toys, cat litter and a pan. It's wise to take photos of your pet in case it gets lost. Pets will be located in a designated area of the shelter.
