Miami Beach says water should be restored to Belle Isle by midnight

Crews continued to work on the water main break on Belle Isle, and the city tweeted Tuesday evening that it hopes to have service restored by midnight.

Then the 48-hour boil water period would begin. That means with some luck, residents will be able to shower in the morning, but they might want to brush their teeth with bottled water — and use it for coffee, too.
