MIAMI – A Flash Flood Warning has been issued until 8:45 p.m. Thursday for parts of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
It covers the area around Hollywood, Pembroke Park, Hallandale Beach, Aventura, North Miami Beach, and Opa-Locka.
A Flood Watch had earlier been issued for South Florida through 7 p.m. thanks to another round of rain associated with the trailing moisture from Tropical Storm Eta, which continues to move over northern Florida.
According to the National Weather Service, there is a high risk of rip currents Thursday along Florida’s Atlantic and Gulf beaches.
In South Florida, isolated and scattered thunderstorms are possible, as well as waterspouts and coastal flooding.
Flooding of roadways and neighborhoods has been a concern for days after Eta passed through South Florida, especially for the metro areas of Broward and northern Miami-Dade County. Forecasters say it will take some time for the rainfall accumulations to recede.
The Flood Watch was put in effect for Southeast Florida from metro Palm Beach to Miami-Dade County.
