People flooded the streets in Miami celebrating the death of Fidel Castro

People flooded the streets of Miami early Saturday morning after the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro was announced.

In an interview with NBC Miami, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida called it “an opportunity to begin a new chapter of freedom and democracy,” noting that people in Cuba would not be allowed to openly show such emotion.

Cars lined the streets in nearby Hialeah, Florida, where people celebrated while waving Cuban flags, honking horns, and banging pots and pans.

Some people raised champagne glasses to toast Castro’s passing. Others shouted chants of “libertad” – Spanish for freedom.

Here’s how things played out:
