Gulf Oil Spill | Deepwater Horizon
Our beautiful beaches remain open to the public. At the present time, the oil spill in the Gulf has not been projected to impact South Florida or Miami Beach. We are currently monitoring the situation with our local, state and federal partners and have a response plan in place to address a range of different possibilities, if necessary.
