Key West Citizen has posted again at Keys News with lots of vital information on the recovery effort from Hurricane Irma. Here are some highlights of what the Citizen wrote:
FUEL: Fuel remains limited in the Keys. But gas stations are beginning to open up to the public, especially in the Upper Keys.
FOOD AND WATER DISTRIBUTION: Two distribution centers for food and water became operation in Key West on Tuesday. One is at the Sears Town Plaza in New Town and the other is in Bahama Village in Old Town. Two other distribution sites are in the works at Sugarloaf School and the National Key Deer Refuge office on the Overseas Highway in Big Pine Key.
SEWER: In Key West, the sewer treatment facility is now functioning. Anyone with running water or a bucket of water will be able to flush.
“Every day, every hour goes by with more progress,” Gastesi said.
CURFEW: The dusk-to-dawn curfew will remain in place until further notice. “Any citizen out moving around at night will be stopped by law enforcement and will be sent home,” Monroe County Sheriff Office Col. Lou Caputo said.
CELL SERVICE: AT&T crews are working to restore service.
MEDICAL SERVICES: Mariners Hospital in Tavernier has opened its emergency room.
Disaster Medical Assistance Teams have arrived and will be setting up in Key West, the Florida Keys Community College and the City of Marathon Park. They will become operational tomorrow. More details to come.
