On August 16, 1981 ...
Tropical Storm Dennis moved slowly through the Florida Straits on the 16th and into the lower southwest coast during the morning of the 17th. Dennis then moved northeastward through southern Florida, emerging into the Atlantic between Cape Canaveral and Daytona Beach early on the 18th, taking nearly three days to cross the state. Highest winds occurred mostly in squalls well east of the center with the highest wind gusts reported between 55 and 60 mph along the lower southeast coast on the 17th. Two tornadoes were reported (Plantation Key and Haulover Beach) as Dennis moved through the Keys and Florida Bay, but no injuries or significant damage resulted. The primary damage in Dennis resulted from widespread flooding in agricultural areas and was most severe in the extreme southern part of Florida Peninsula. 10 to 20 inches of rain fell south and east of Lake Okeechobee, with amounts of 5 to 10 inches reported along the southeast and east-central coast. West Kendall, Miami-Dade Co., measured 20.37 inches and amounts in the 19 to 20 inch range were common through the Homestead/Florida City area where flood waters came into many homes and businesses.
