MIRAMAR, Fla. – Miramar Mayor Wayne M. Messam is distributing bottled water and ready-to-eat meals Friday to residents following Hurricane Irma.

The event begins at noon and is being held at Mirmar Parkway and 69th Way, across from the Shell gas station in Historic Miramar.

"Some folks can't, like for example, if you're a senior, you can't go to a point of distribution, and we see that as an area where we can fill the gap," Messam said. "We want to make sure we're as nimble and as accessible as possible for our community." 

Miramar residents were grateful for the efforts to take care of those in need during this time.

"It is not normal yet, especially in my neighborhood, because everybody around us has lights on. We are not normal," Christina Bryant said.
