Although feared to have a huge impact on Miami Beach tourism, Hurricane Ernesto lost steam and was downgraded to a tropical storm.

Initially feared to have the force of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ernesto lost force and weakened to a tropical storm on Sunday, August 27. Although forecasters worried that the storm would pick up force and resume its hurricane status, Ernesto did not hit the state of Florida with hurricane force.

Miami Beach’s oceanfront Newport Beachside Resort ( remained open and honored all reservations through the pre-storm panic. Resort general manager Barry Harris is advising guests that “Ernesto is over and all is great in paradise.” The food is hot, the beach is groomed, and the resort is in full swing for end of summer travel.

Unfortunately, sometimes news reports can get taken out of context, and instead of serving as a warning to the public, they can cause panic. If you are traveling and worried about weather or other issues going on in the area you will be traveling to, always check with the establishment you will be visiting to find out the true nature of the conditions in the area. The hotel will be able to confirm or deny conditions in the area, and will work with you to accommodate you accordingly.
