CLIMATE CHANGE – A MAJOR CONCERN FOR MIAMI AND ALL SOUTH FLORIDA RESIDENTS -

Miami: When Hurricane Irma made its way across the Caribbean and struck the U.S.  mainland in September 2017, some 6.5 million Floridians decided to evacuate to escape its destructive force. Sadly, many parts of Miami suffered extensive property damage through flooding and destruction from Irma's recorded 112 mph winds. In total, 7.7 million Florida businesses and homes suffered power outages throughout almost 75% of the State. Hurricane Irma also left close to 85 fatalities because of drowning, life ending injuries, and inhalation of toxic fumes. In Miami-Dade, fallen trees, fencing, and flying debris caused property damage to almost 1000 homes, with storm surges leaving areas like Homestead, downtown Miami, and Miami Beach underwater. As if storm damage wasn't enough, local businesses in the Miami Metro area experienced looting and burglaries.

Today, A group of engineers belonging to the U.S. Army Corps has proposed to build a six-mile long, 20-foot-high wall along the Miami coast with hopes of preventing hurricane storm surges that could once again flood many parts of Miami-Dade.
