Irma Aftermath: When Can People Return To Miami?

Mariners work together to secure each other's vessels at Harbor Square Marina in Meritt Island Fla. as residents in the area prepare ahead of Hurricane Irma on Sept. 7 2017

Broward and Palm Beach Counties, as well as the cities of Miami and Miami Beach in Miami-Dade County, have issued such curfews in order to prevent people from venturing out in potentially life-threatening conditions.

"We got the opposite results from what I expected because those who stayed and who were under mandatory evacuation, they had more dependable social networks than those who evacuated", said Jennifer Collins, one of the University of South Florida researchers.

"Even tho (sic) I think they're idiots for staying, I hope they're safe".

In Miami-Dade - where Gimenez this week ordered the largest evacuation in South Florida's history out of concern for Irma's 10-foot-high storm surge potential - about 26,000 evacuees have gone to the 42 shelters set up the county, Miami-Dade Schools, the Red Cross and the National Guard. While teams are clearing the city, they ask residents in the city not to leave their homes. "We have crews all over the city clearing the roads".

"I beg and plead for everyone's patience, we want everybody to come back but we want you to come back in a safe mode", he added.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement published on state media that if the USA "does rig up the illegal and unlawful 'resolution, '" it would respond in kind.

"The crews on Miami Beach are doing everything they can to clear up these streets", Levine said in a video posted on Twitter.

"Miami Beach is working hard to quickly clear our streets so that residents can safely return home ASAP!"

Gimenez said he didn't see the need for a countywide curfew before Irma arrived, saying he wanted to wait until power outages and storm damage left roads unpassable and vacant storefronts vulnerable to looting. "The areas where we raised our roads, put in pumps, put in portable generators, fared very well".

"You can call, but we're not coming", Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said.

Residents are allowed re-access first, then business owners, employees, and contractors, however, they are required to present identification which proves their Miami Beach residence. However, any cars that were parked there to be protected from the storm must be moved by Monday, September 18.
