No 911 available for emergencies since winds went to 40 mph?

My aunt went through that. Weeks without power in a ten story highrise in a hot Florida September. Pretty tough going up and down those stairs at 75.

Hurricane Irma's runoff draws brown line of pollution on Florida's Atlantic Coast
USAToday Network, Tyler Treadway, The (Stuart, Fla.) News, 2017-10-11

JUPITER ISLAND, Fla. — Rainfall runoff and Lake Okeechobee discharges since Hurricane Irma hit Florida last month have turned miles of Atlantic beaches and Indian River Lagoon waters the color of coffee.

"What's worse than the color of the water is what's in the water," said Gilmore, lead scientist for Estuarine, Coastal & Ocean Science in Vero Beach, Fla. "The chemicals (from crops and lawns) kill the plankton in the (St. Lucie) river and lagoon that all the fish depend on for food."

The fish can flee and some see an influx of brown water each fall as a signal to head to the ocean to spawn, he said. Oysters and sea grass can't leave, and they're dying because the influx of fresh water lowers the salinity they need to survive.

"There's been basically no salinity in most of the St. Lucie River since the hurricane four weeks ago," said Vincent Encomio, a researcher at Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart, Fla. "We're at the threshold of high mortality."

As go the oysters, so go many other marine species in the river and lagoon.

Now a hurricane has reached even the British Isles. Most powerful one ever to go ashore there. Cat 4.

Damages from Hurricane Irma mount in Central Florida
Orlando Sentinel, by Mary Shanklin, Oct 18 2017

One out of every 150 houses, business and other properties in Orange County suffered damage from Hurricane Irma...

Central Florida claims related to Irma totaled about 126,000 for Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake counties. Within the four-county region, Orange took the brunt of the damage followed by Osceola with 24,141 claims, Seminole with 20,521 claims and Lake with 19,981 claims, according to the state.

Hal Breeding, who lives near St. Cloud, said Farm Bureau Insurance was the only thing that worked for him following the storm. He said Federal Emergency Management Agency was unresponsive to his calls and made him wait hours on the phone before telling him the computers were down.

“I called four roofers and not a one showed up for a month,” Breeding said. One roofing company did finally tarp over Breeding’s house to protect it until they could get back in six months to install a new roof for $12,000, he added.

Insurance filings underscore that Irma’s winds wreaked much more havoc than floodwaters. Less than 1 percent of the 747,534 insurance claims filed in Florida for Irma damage were for flood-related problems.
