A WORLD OF LOCAL EXPERTISE
Ports begin to open following Hurricane Irma
Sep 13 2017



Irma has finally dissipated to levels where it should no longer overwhelm available drainage systems or cause damage to structures. Search and rescue, damage assessment and recovery efforts went into high gear on Tuesday (12 September).


In Florida, the Keys seems to have sustained the most significant storm surge and wind damage, but all parts of Florida and some areas in Georgia and South Carolina have incurred hurricane damage of varying degrees.


Electrical power is still out for six million people across the Southeast United States with five million of those in Florida. In Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands there are 330,000 people without power. The number of power outages on other islands is not specifically known, but unofficial sources indicate this is widespread.
