Hurricane Recovery at a Fast Pace

 

The State of Florida is making great strides in helping Floridians recover from the devastation Hurricane Ian left in its wake.

FDOT has already made tremendous progress on the temporary bridge to Pine Island,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Now, I’ve asked them to work with Lee County to immediately begin work to provide temporary access and begin repairs to the Sanibel Causeway. Access to our barrier islands is a priority for our first responders and emergency services who have been working day and night to bring relief to all Floridians affected by Hurricane Ian.”

According to an Executive Office press release, recovery efforts are in full swing in the hardest hit counties of Lee and Charlotte:

· All Lee County hospitals are open and operational.

· A mobile, public fueling station opened today in Lee County at the Stars Complex to provide fuel for vehicles and gas cans for generators to impacted residents.

· Area Agency on Aging service providers in Charlotte and Lee counties have resumed delivering meals to home-delivery clients. These are shelf stable meals to ensure those without power can store them. Providers are also delivering hygiene products that were donated by organizations in Central Florida.

· All accessible bridges have been inspected in Lee and Charlotte counties. FDOT continues to assist with inspections on locally-owned bridges.

· 98% of cut and toss operations are complete in Lee County.

· Debris removal has begun, most heavily focused in Southwest Florida.

· U.S. 17 through Wauchula to Arcadia, has now been cleared and was reopened last night, Oct. 3, a major thoroughfare through the area.

· DOE has deployed staff to visit Charlotte County to further assess damages and provide assistance with reopening.

· The School District of Miami-Dade County has dispatched an experienced emergency operations expert to assist Lee County School District as they work to reopen schools.

· FDLE is establishing an additional base camp in Lee County providing housing, food, showers and laundry services are available for U.S. Coast Guard members deployed in post hurricane response

A boil water order is still in effect in many areas within the two counties.

 

Show me the Donations

First Lady Casey DeSantis, who is spearheading the Florida Disaster Fund, has announced that in less than a week, $35 million has been raised to help Floridians recover from the storm.

“The support for Florida has been incredible and the Governor and I are appreciative for help from across the country,” said First Lady Casey DeSantis.

“As we’ve traveled the state to assess damage, we’ve encountered resilient and strong Floridians who are ready to get back to normal. This $35 million will help with those recovery and rebuilding efforts.”

 

The Rising Death Toll

The death toll in Southwest Florida stands at 87 with many of those deaths being attributed to individuals who ignored evacuation warnings and refused to leave their homes prior to the storm making landfall READ MORE


Debunking a False Media Narrative

It’s been reported that whenever Gov. DeSantis is on the ground, all operations in that respective area are ceased.

This is not true, and DeSantis himself has said so.

Now the proof that both state and civil rescue operations have not ceased as a result of DeSantis being in the area has come out.

A resident of DeSoto county claimed that her efforts to help Floridians stopped because of DeSantis.

The truth is, they didn’t and now there are images showing an actual DeSantis staffer helping this woman load supplies onto a boat used to distribute those supplies. READ MORE
