Heavy Rain From Tropical Storm Eta Floods Miami Gardens

Tropical Storm Eta brought strong wind and heavy rain to the Miami area early Monday, November 9, flooding roadways in South Florida and knocking out power to several thousand residents.

Eta made landfall as a tropical storm on Sunday as the National Weather Service (NWS) warned of life-threatening flash flooding and possible hurricane conditions for areas in South Florida.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools were closed Monday, as were courts and county clerks offices, State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.
