"Periods of heavy rain is expected today, especially across the east coast metro, where 3-8 inches and localized amounts in excess of 10 inches is possible through Thursday morning. A Flood Watch is in effect for all of Miami-Dade, along with coastal/metro Broward and Palm Beach counties."

And the rainy, windy weather is causing flooding in downtown Miami especially along North Bayshore Drive.
