Massive Storm Causes Flooding, Power Outages in Florida 

Over 50,000 without power in the southeastern part of the state.

Southeastern Florida has experienced up to ten inches of heavy rainfall Thursday. Tens of thousands of people have experienced power outages due to wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour in some coastal areas downing trees and creating other damage. 

Weather forecasters say the storm was created by a confluence of systems that developed in the Gulf of Mexico. NOAA meteorologists reported that continued thunderstorm activity and rainfall are expected through Thursday. 

Miami-Dade and Broward counties were put under a Flash Flood Warning. Public school classes in the area were canceled.  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Florida state and local officials as they deal with the severe storms.
  • For the safety of the residents impacted by power outages and downed trees.
  • For first responders in the region as they seek to help those in danger.
