Photos & Video: Irma Storm Surge In Brickell

Brickell appears to be taking the worst of Hurricane Irma’s storm surge, even more so than Miami Beach:

This is not a great thing to see. This happened with Category one, two conditions and the worst of Irma was a good distance away. It shows just how bad the city could be devastated if a 1926 or Hurricane Andrew made landfall in the city. Direct landfall over the city that is. While the scenario would suck, it shouldn’t stop us from continuing to make Miami a great city. Every city has its natural disasters. We’ll get through it. Good luck everyone! Will be back in Miami in less than two weeks!

If Irmas eye had gone directly over Miami like the original projections the city would have been squashed. I have lived in brickell since Wilma and it has NEVER flooded like that. And this was a side swipe from a distant hurricane. Miami needs to make some major changes to survive a huge storm surge

That intersection of Brickell & Coral Way always floods like that. Even after a tropical storm. I’ve lived in Miami 50 yrs & Brickell 15 yrs. The entire Brickell corridor doesn’t look like this. And 2 of those pictures are of the “Miami River” not the streets of DT. Of course it has lots of water. It’s the River! Sensentionalism at its finest. Ufff!!!

I’m interested to know how well did BCC held up during the storm. Being open like it is with the climate river I want to see did flood or was it just fine?

I live in BCC reach tower no flooding, mall fine less a few trees because they never were mature enough to be rooted well. Surprised no trees I saw flew off any nearby towers penthouse units. The river surged and covered the whole triangle where river oyster bar is but BCC was unscathed. We lost power in the condo tower maybe 5 or 6 times literally just long enough to shut your computer off. The wind gusts between some towers was really nasty.

I was living in Brickell during Hurricane Andrew and the water level rose above our heads – destroying the first floor of our condo building.

Damn! I am glad I missed all of this. New Orleans on the other had was great, nothing but sunny skies and 75 degree weather. Happy to see that Brickell is getting back to normal.

Miami is still the best city in the world.

I feel like there should be a gate at the entrance to the river into Brickell. When we have a bad storm it closes to prevent flooding in Brickell.

Maybe a dome over Miami a la The Simpsons Movie?
