So. Fla. deals with flooding after Sandy
HAULOVER BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Parts of South Florida beaches remain flooded after Hurricane Sandy's aftermath.
Big waves covered the sand over Haulover Beach Monday the morning after. The marina on the bay side was covered in water, along with parts of the streets, making it hard for morning commuters.
Lifeguards said it's still not safe for beach goers to get into the water and have double red flags out warning of the current.
From South Beach to the Venetian Causeway, many parts of Miami Beach are still affected by flooding.
Officials said they are trying to do everything possible to make it safe for residents and tourists. "The city has done many things to improve the storm drainage," said Miami Beach Spokesperson Nannette Rodriguez. "Unfortunately, with this kind of phenomenon, there's not much you can really do. We have closed lanes, impassible lanes this morning, and we will continue to do so. There are some parts of the city that will be a little dark tonight because some of the water has gone into the electrical streetlights. We are monitoring that, again, to make sure that we don't have any problems to our street lights."
Local officials are preparing for more flooding, due to the high tides.
