South Florida's annual rainy season typically last from June through October, a five-month period that brings more than two-thirds of our regional rainfall in an average year. The rainy season can also bring flooding, which may occur when large amounts of rain fall over a short period of time or from a single heavy storm, tropical system or hurricane.
Flood Control: A Shared Responsibility The South Florida Water Management District operates and maintains the regional water management system known as the Central and Southern Florida Project. This system of canals and natural waterways connects to community drainage districts and hundreds of smaller neighborhood systems to effectively manage floodwaters during heavy rain.
How You Can Help South Florida residents can do their part to prepare for flooding by:
Learning about our regional drainage system
Maintaining neighborhood swales, culvert and ditches by removing debris and obstructions
Reporting or correcting problems both before and after a storm
