Mayor Gimenez Orders Mandatory Evacuation For Key Biscane Village

As of 7 p.m. Wednesday, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A Gimenez has ordered a mandatory evacuation of Category A Coastal Areas including the Village of Key Biscayne.

Gimenez formally declared a state of emergency for the Village of Key Biscayne Wednesday evening. 

The state of emergency will remain in effect until terminated by the Village of Key Biscane Council. 

Village offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, although the Key Biscayne Community Center will remain open until further notice. 

Street parking is not allowed around Village Hall, as the area is needed for emergency personnel and equipment. 

Residents are asked to heed barricades and no-parking signs.

Once the area is declared safe, business owners and condo managers who hold hurricane passes can return, but only to help inspect damage to their properties. 

Pass-holders will be asked to show ID at the entry to the Rickenbacker Causeway, and only the allotted number of pass-holders for each business or condominium will be allowed to return.
