Florida Keys To Reopen Sunday, Three Weeks After Irma
(Key West, FL) — After being hit hard by Hurricane Maria the Florida Keys are set to reopen. That was the target date set last week by Governor Rick Scott. Officials do advise potential visitors to call ahead to ensure that hotels and attractions are open. Some hotels are accommodating displaced residents under a FEMA program. And recovery efforts are ongoing, especially in the lower Keys and parts of Marathon where many residences and businesses were hardest hit by the storm. But Monroe County Mayor George Neugent said that they need to start asking visitors to return because tourism is the Keys’ “top economic engine” and many of their residents’ livelihoods depend on it.
