What to Do If Your Miramar Home Has Flooded

Heavy rains, thunderstorms, and flooding have been going on all across the Florida Panhandle since yesterday, Feb. 11, 2018. The National Weather Service continues to issue flash flood warnings, advisories, and watches for many areas along the Emerald Coast. One such area that has been heavily affected by flooding is Miramar Beach. Since Miramar Beach is located on a peninsula, flooding conditions are a real threat.
