MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A sign welcoming tourists to Miami Beach briefly offered a confusing message.

The flashing, portable sign along the Julia Tuttle Causeway on Tuesday read: “Welcome visitors! Prohibited.”

It was supposed to flash this message on three different screens: “Welcome visitors! Prohibited on the beach: glass, metal, alcohol and Styrofoam.”

By Tuesday evening, city officials had apologized for the error and the sign was removed to be corrected.

City spokeswoman Nannette Rodriguez told the Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1AHmq7F ) that Miami Beach certainly welcomes visitors. She offered apologies to anyone who was offended.
