The South Beach dry-flood on Friday was a shadow (a puddle?) of the wave we experienced Thursday.
Most of beach roads were passable, mostly dry. The worst areas Belle Isle Blog found during its search was south of Seventh Street on West Avenue and Alton Road, as high tide arrived about 9 a.m. Friday.
Despite the high water, the road remained passable.
The city was prepared, with traffic cones our and warnings up early. Most roads were dry at about 7 a.m., but water began gushing out of sewers and manholes as the morning rush hour pushed 8 a.m. and then 9 a.m.
Belle Isle stayed pretty dry, and so did Purdy Avenue in Sunset Harbour, except for the corner at 17th Street.
Weather forecasters said the next high tide — at 9 p.m. Friday — will again produce rising water, but they don’t predict anything like the flooding on Thursday.
