Mitch fallout visits S. Florida

MIAMI -- Tropical storm Mitch and several tornadoes it spawned caused sporadic power outages on Nov. 4 from Key Largo north to Fort Lauderdale.

On Nov. 5, aside from the power problems, damage to the tourism infrastructure was minimal: some street flooding in South Miami Beach; a lost decorative awning at the Hampton Inn in Islamorada, and damage to some campgrounds in North Key Largo.
