Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez issued an evacuation order for residents living in mobile parks and low-lying areas prone to flooding Saturday afternoon.
He said three shelters will open in Miami-Dade County at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, Booker T. Washington School and Robert Morgan Senior High School. Dr. Michael M Krop will be the only shelter that is pet friendly.
Tropical storm force winds from Isaac could begin in South Florida as early as Sunday morning.
Gimenez urged residents to begin putting up their shutters, gathering supplies and filling up their cars with gas.
“You should begin putting up your shutters now. Even tropical storm winds can cause damage so you shouldn’t wait until the last moment to protect your home,” he said.
