SFWMD Prepares for Rainy Season with Annual Hurricane Freddy Drill
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- A simulated Hurricane Freddy ravaged South Florida last week, coming ashore in Miami-Dade County with high winds and dropping feet of heavy rainfall across the region. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) was ready and sprung into action all day to protect the 8.1 million residents it serves from flooding.
SFWMD held its annual "Hurricane Freddy" drill on April 17, 2019. Staff practiced its emergency response to a simulated hurricane scenario to ensure the District is prepared if a real hurricane hits South Florida. The drill is part of SFWMD's annual preparations for the start of the hurricane season, which officially starts June 1.
