The SoFlo Scoop: Miami Heat defeats New York Knicks; Boil-water notice in some Miami-Dade cities; Water park plans halted

Good morning South Florida! Today is Friday, March 31. Miami is expected to have a high of 84 and low of 69 with isolated thunderstorms; Key West will be partly cloudy with a high of 81 and a low of 74. Fort Lauderdale will have afternoon thunderstorms with a high of 86 and a low of 69, while those in Naples will have partly cloudy skies and a high of 83 and a low of 68. Time to get smart fast:

  • Miami Heat defeated the New York Knicks Wednesday Night, 105-88. The Heat moved up to seventh place in the East. Miami Herald
  • A boil-water notification was issued for North Miami Beach and its surrounding cities Wednesday. A brief power outage at Norwood Water Treatment Plant caused the water pressure to fall below 20 pounds per square inch for almost a minute, a media release said. Local 10
  • White House chief strategist Steve Bannon will not face criminal charges for his strange voter registration in Miami-Dade. Miami-Dade prosecutors said that the criminal charge could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt that Bannon broke the law by signing up to vote in Miami-Dade after leasing some houses in Coconut Grove. Miami Herald
  • U.S. Federal Judge stopped upcoming plans for a water park in Fort Lauderdale. The judge nulled a property agreement between the city and developer Schlitterbahn, in order to give other development companies an opportunity to place competitive bids for the use of the property. Sun-Sentinel
  • The state of Florida may give consent to spend about $200 million to change students from failing schools to charter schools. The proposal, Schools of Hope, wants to give children from urban and poor areas an opportunity to receive world-class education, according to House Speaker Richard Corcoran. NBC Miami
