September 10th Florida experienced one of the strongest hurricanes since 2005. The Tri-County area of South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties), were very fortunate to not have been hit by the eye of the storm as anticipated.

Properties near or on the beach weathered the storm and are intact. Some of the single family residences and commercial buildings were damaged by uprooted tress that could not support the Category 4 winds at appx. 145mph, homes not secured with shutters or impact resistant windows suffered damages along with some aged roofs that ended up with damages as well. Thousands of homeowners were left without electricity, some for as long as 2 weeks.

The cleanup of debris and fallen trees was probably the most that municipalities had seen in a very long time. Residents banded together to help one another through this trying time.

Unfortunately the residents of Key Largo, Islamorada and Key West were not as fortunate. Hurricane Irma battered what most Florida Residents know as "The Conch Republic". Key West itself is generally intact though without power, a water supply and a functional sewage system but it's was not complete devastation. Hurricane Irma's vicious storm surges saturated many of the coastal homes, wrecking vehicles in its path.

Florida Residents are survivors and thanks to updated building codes after Hurricane Andrew, many houses were able to withstand the storm's fury. The recovery process for the Florida Keys is going to be very long but there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel. As of today, businesses are starting to reopen and residents are taking steps to rebuild.
