Update on Tropical Storm Eta
– Parking Fees Waived for Hollywood Residents for 48 Hours at City-Operated Garages
- Sanitation Collection Services Suspended for Monday
Heavy rainfall from Eta will continue across portions of Cuba, Jamaica, the Bahamas and southern Florida and spread north into central Florida. Life-threatening flash flooding will be possible across inundated urban areas of southeast Florida today. Water levels will gradually recede along portions of the coast as Eta moves away from our area. Please avoid the following roadways in the City due to extensive flooding caused by Tropical Storm Eta:
- Johnson Street from 64 Ave to 72 Ave
- Taft Street from 64 Ave to 70 Ave
- Sheridan Street from 64 Ave to 66 Ave
- Fillmore Street to 72 Ave
- All areas east of 13 Ave between Washington Street and Harrison Street
Please avoid these and any other roadways where there is standing water as your vehicle may become stranded. Residents should also avoid wading in standing water as it may contain unknown hazards. Weather conditions remain hazardous at this time. It is strongly recommended that residents remain indoors and refrain from any unnecessary travel until after Eta has cleared the area.
