The tropical depression, with winds of 35 mph, crossed Miami-Dade County, South Florida, during the early hours of Saturday.
Tropical depression #19: what the authorities report
Miami-Dade based National Hurricane Center (HNC) reports that tropical depression #19, which passed through Miami-Dade County and the Everglades, transits the Gulf of Mexico with sustained winds of 35 mph (55 km/h).
The small cyclonic phenomenon made landfall in Key Biscayne first, right on the border between Crandon Park Beach and the town’s city center, and then went out to the south side of Biscayne Bay to make landfall again, this time in the Gables States area, very close to Matheson Hammock Park, and continue to Kendall and finally the Everglades.
A walk through the places where the tropical depression transited in Miami-Dade did not denote visible property damage, except for a number of palm plumes that the wind advanced its fall.
From tropical depression to tropical storm
According to the weather report, the tropical depression is heading northwest and could become a tropical storm before reaching the Louisiana coast, where the city of New Orleans is located.

Either way, weather experts remember that we are in the midst of the development of the cyclonic season, when the sea temperature reaches its maximum temperature and aligns with the atmospheric pattern to generate storm, so they recommend being aware of periodic reports.
