MIAMI, Fla. (WCJB)-- All boat ramps and marinas in Miami-Dade county have been closed until further notice.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced the closures after learning about a flyer inviting people to a sandbar party. Video shows hundreds of boats at an inlet last Saturday.

The closure will not affect commercial fishermen. Gimenez says police will be patrolling the waters and ramping up enforcement of his order.
