ANALYSIS

On May 16, 2019 the City of Miami Beach experienced an extreme rain event that resulted in disruptive flooding in Sunset Harbour and other neighborhoods and was reported by various media outlets (attached). In order to plan ahead and best prepare for these events, this referral item should:

1. Understand the anticipated frequency of these extreme rain events 

2. Review how the City's systems performed during this specific extreme rain event (i.e. amount of flooding, time in the streets, etc) and how the City measures performance (eg. City stormwater management dashboard - example attached)  

3. Identify any lessons learned for the City and community
