'A huge airborne relief mission is en route to the Keys to help people impacted by the devastation caused when the eye of Hurricane Irma blasted through the Lower Florida Keys at daybreak Sunday morning.'
'Monroe County Emergency Management Director Martin Senterfitt called the destruction caused by Irma, a massive Category 4 storm when it impacted the Keys, a "humanitarian crisis." '
'Among the services coming to the Keys are "disaster mortuary teams," he said during a conference call.'
'United States Air Force special operations pilots are testing flights with C-130 cargo planes around the massive storm from Mississippi to the Keys in anticipation of the mission, which will include Air National Guard flights of more C-130s and helicopters following the fixed-wing flights.'
Keeping it real here...
Maybe we should try to correlate our recent observations of Irma with the resulting damage that occurred on the ground so we can better communicate potential hazards of future storms.
My concern is that business interests near the Florida Keys will try to sweep any evidence of damage due to Irma under the rug in order to promote future home investments.
Our news networks may largely ignore satellite images of homes washed off foundations due to destructive storm surge in the US.
It always seems challenging to find these pics after events such as Gaveston, Sandy, Katrina, etc...
