Hurricane Irma Survivors!!

Postby FLgator » Sun Sep 17, 2017 11:36 pm

Well I'm happy to report much of north west Florida came through Irma without too much damage. Considering this is the second September hurricane we've endured in two years, I am ready for a few years without any.

The mass exodus of south Florida through the northern counties was tremendous. By the time we were given the word to evacuate there was no gas or hotel rooms available for miles and miles. Many here had no choice but to stay put. The return incursion once Irma left the area was equally tremendous. We are grateful IRMA lost most of her fight along the way up the state.

I have many friends and family around the state; mostly in the Fort Lauderdale and Tampa Bay areas. All reported in and did not have significant damage, mostly just power outages, including one tough 89 y/o family member who went 6 days without electric.

We are all praying for the many who are still without power and resources in south Florida. We're also praying hurricane Marie fizzles out before reaching the Caribbean.

If anyone is able to provide direct assistance (food, laundry service, ice, water), to the many lineman that are working ANYWHERE in Florida, please go to "IRMA Recovery: Florida Linemen Support" Facebook group.
