North Miami residents are under a boil-water notice, the city announced Wednesday afternoon.
“Due to water main breaks in our city, North Miami Water Utility customers are asked to boil water as a precautionary measure,” city officials said in a post-Hurricane Irma statement.
Before using tap water for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing your teeth or washing dishes, boil it first for about one minute.
The boil-water notice will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected and a bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.
Never miss a local story.
Several other South Florida cities also asked residents to boil water after Irma struck on Sunday.
