Flood advisory in Broward County

 

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flood advisory for south Broward County, including Pembroke Pines and Miramar.

About three inches of rain had fallen in the area Saturday afternoon and the forecast calls for an additional three inches through early evening.

“Most flood deaths occur in automobiles,” warned the NWS. “Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear.”

Saturday’s forecast also called for thunderstorms with the possibility of nickle-sized hail throughout South Florida.

The thunderstorms are moving slowly, which increases the chances of flooding, according to the NWS.

The flood advisory is expected to last until 5:45 p.m.
