Unprecedented Hot Temperatures And Rain Hits Miami
August 3. 2017
This is a follow up to the July 18, 2017 "Shark Bites Man In Miami In Unprecedented Attack (Video)" article where I stated, "Another serious issue regarding Miami and a number of other cities is costal building. Too many buildings have been erected far too close to the shores. The water is going to rise and come in. Rising waters and other whether phenomenon will prove very problematic for residents of buildings built too close to the water."
2-weeks later, this past Monday, the water from heavy rains rose to unprecedented levels on Miami Beach, causing damage to homes, businesses and cars. Articles, photos and video online confirm the rain and ocean rise that occurred had a costly impact on Miami Beach, which is full of the costal building I stated would prove problematic. Many businesses were closed this week as repair crews attempting to address the water damage from the heavy rains.
Another factor I wrote about for months on Twitter, which was also featured in the July 18, 2017 "Shark Bites Man In Miami In Unprecedented Attack (Video)" article, regarding global temperatures was confirmed on August 1, 2017, when meteorologists stated July 2017 was Miami's hottest month on record. These subsequent events support my theories.
If you thought July felt like the hottest month ever, you’re right
August 01, 2017 11:44 AM - That time you whined about July in Miami being the “hottest ever?” Turns out, you were right. July was Miami’s hottest month on average since the National Weather Service started tracking air temperatures in 1895. The average temperature for most of the month was around 85.7 degrees, just under two degrees hotter than normal, the service reported. The average broke the previous record of 85.5 degrees in June 2010...

12:28 PM, August 02, 2017 - MIAMI - Crews have been busy
since Tuesday night drying out and making all of the
necessary repairs to the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse in
downtown Miami after it sustained serious flooding.
Meanwhile, people who went to the courthouse Wednesday for
their hearings were forced to leave and told that the
courthouse was closed.
"It's unfortunate because I had a family hearing that took four months to set, and now I'm faced with this," Jose Borge said. "It is unfortunate because I had to make arrangements for my children, and I had to take off the morning in order to get this accomplished," Martha Perez said.
Attorney Raul Mantaner said his client drove all the way from Bradenton for his hearing. "He woke up really early this morning to get here. It's about a three-hour drive, and (we) just found out this happened," Mantaner said. Mantaner said he wishes he was informed because it would have saved his client a lot of hassle. "Maybe they do need a robo call or an email system, because I am on the clerk's email system. Something would have been nice," he said...
