Miami-Dade County has lifted the daily curfew it imposed Sunday after Hurricane Irma.

The 7 p.m.-7 a.m. curfew will not be enforced Tuesday night, county spokesman Michael Hern√°ndez said. The city of Miami also did away with its curfew Tuesday.

Some cities, however, still have curfews set to give cleanup crews more space to work on restoring power and hauling away fallen trees and other debris.

Monroe County, home to the hard-hit Florida Keys, set a dawn-to-dusk curfew Tuesday to keep people away from dangerous roads and let cleanup teams drive in.

Broward County lifted its curfew Monday, less than 48 hours after it was imposed and despite criticism from some city mayors.
