Higher than average tide levels caused minor flooding along the Atlantic Coast of South Florida Thursday and the flooding is expected tocontinue for the next several days.
Water levels were expected to run between half a foot to a foot above normal through the weekend from lower Palm Beach County through Miami-Dade County, according to the National Weather Service in Miami.
Flooding has affected portions of Cordova Road in Broward, and Alton Road and West Avenue in Miami Beach, with water being over curb level in a few spots, the NWS said.
The most flooding will occur during high tide at mid-morning and mid-evening hours, and will last for two to three days after Friday's full moon. Residual flood water could remain on roadways outside the high tide cycle, the NWS said.
