Hurricane Irma was a monster storm that has and will continue to affect so many people and businesses by her massive trail of destruction.
Based in Miami, Florida we braced for the worst and prepared for a direct hit with potential for major destruction. But as Hurricane Irma approached landfall in the U.S.A, it was the Florida Keys that took a direct hit with significant implications and left a destructive path.
Hurricane Irma made landfall on the low-lying islands of the Florida Keys the morning of September 10th. It was the first Cat 4 landfall in Florida since 2004, with 130 mph winds and a storm surge of 10 feet. The damage is incredible.
(Source: CNN) "What they found was devastating: Based on initial estimates, 25% of the houses on the chain of islands have been destroyed, the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Tuesday. Another 65% suffered major damage.
"Basically, every house in the Keys was impacted some way," FEMA Administrator Brock Long said.
