Keys res­i­dents told to be self-sus­tain­ing

The Garden Island - - Morning Briefing -

As the dev­as­tated Florida Keys be­gan re­open­ing to res­i­dents who fled Hur­ri­cane Irma, of­fi­cials warned the re­turn­ing is­landers to bring enough sup­plies to sus­tain them for a while, be­cause no one yet knows when wa­ter and power will be fully re­stored.

“The Keys are not what you left sev­eral days ago when you evac­u­ated. Elec­tric­ity, sewer and wa­ter are in­ter­mit­tent at best,” said Mon­roe County Mayor Ge­orge Neu­gent. ••• As­so­ci­ated Press
