It’s going to be tough to get across the bridge to Sunset Harbour and the rest of Miami Beach for Belle Isle and Venetians Isles residents.
The city of Miami Beach says it is the result of a water main break in Sunset Harbour at about 9 a.m. (Update: Miami Beach now says repairs should be done by 3 p.m.).
The bridge is almost knee deep in sea water, and Sunset Harbour is badly flooded.
Here is the press release from Miami Beach:
Miami Beach Public Works responded to a water main break at Purdy Avenue, near Dade Boulevard, in the Sunset Harbour neighborhood at around 9AM. Repairs are expected to take approximately four to six hours.
Residents in the general area may experience low water pressure during this time. We’re asking area residents to please be patient as we work on the repairs.
A precautionary boil water advisory will be issued to affected area residents and businesses.
