Hurricane Irma

On September 10, 2017 Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida keys as a very strong category 4 storm.  Roughly 425 miles wide and packing sustained winds of 130 mph at time of impact, Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc from Key West to Jacksonville.  In it's wake, the entire state was impacted by the challenges of storm recovery, from wide spread power outages and mass evacuations to debris management to communications and collaboration with FEMA to provide relief to Florida's citizens.  FAC has compiled reports and data on the impacts of Hurricane Irma to help address the challenges that the state and counties face when preparing for future storms.
