At McTyre Park, there were a line of cars with people hoping to receive water.

Dania Beach Mayor Tamara James was present at the Dania Beach distribution center. “It’s very important, especially because we have a boil water advisory for the west part of Dania Beach,” said James. “It’s very important that we help our residents in the time of need.”

James added she’s not limiting the water distribution to Dania Beach — they are handing out water for anyone that was affected by Irma.

Some residents picking up water said they remain without power. “We did very well,” said a resident. “We’re still out of electricity, but we’re hoping that we get it back today.”

The hours of operation are subject to change depending on the supply of water and the needs of the local community. The distribution is limited to one case of water per vehicle.

For any questions regarding boil water notices in these areas, call 954-831-3250.
