Dear Friends & Neighbors,

We understand that many residents and businesses in Miami Beach are still without power. Hurricane Irma has crippled Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida's electrical grid. Florida Power & Light has brought in crews from around the country to help get Florida back on its feet. The good news for Miami Beach is that all FPL substations are operational. This is crucial for a faster recovery.

FPL has deployed 24 hour staff in our Emergency Operations Center to assist with quickly getting Miami Beach's power restored. Public Works and FPL are working together in the field conducting damage assessments and beginning the restoration process. Critical infrastructure such as hospitals and the police and fire stations are being prioritized. 

Although we do not control FPL and their operations, I promise you that I will use the full force of my office to continue to put pressure on FPL to get our community's power restored so we can return to normalcy. My office will be monitoring power outages closely until power is fully restored. 


A number of intersections have traffic signals that are not working properly.  For your safety, please treat these intersections as a four-way stop and use caution. 

Our community, working together, will continue to work day and night until Miami Beach is fully restored. 

Thank you for your patience,

Mayor Philip Levine
