MIAMI SHORES, Fla. - Miami Shores police established a residential checkpoint Wednesday after reports of break-ins at the public works facility following Hurricane Irma.

The checkpoint has been set up at North East 96th Street and North East 10th Avenue.

Police said they've had an issue with break-ins at the public works facility, as well as homes in this part of Miami Shores following the storm, so they want to make sure that everyone who is coming into the neighborhood has a legitimate reason for being there.

Authorities said 96th Street is the main way in and out of that portion of the Shores.

The National Guard has helped out local authorities only at night by patrolling the streets.

Residents coming back into the area will have to show proof that they live there.

A curfew from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. remains in effect for Miami Shores until further notice.
