Rising river threatens Florida residents in Irma's wake

Hiscox sees $150 million net claims from Hurricane Harvey

Analytics firm Corelogic on Tuesday estimated total insured and uninsured losses from damage to properties from Hurricane Irma at $42.5-$65 billion.

We didn't have a plan for them. On one hand, we need lots of people to get this place cleaned up and running again. on the other hand, I can't imagine what it's going to be like with thousands of more people taxing what resources we have here.

Some parents say the worst part of the hurricane's aftermath has been the lack of options for children as many stores, pools and water parks have been closed due to cleanup efforts and no power.

Although Irma struck on Sept 10, some Keys residents still can not return to their homes.

"County medical examiners are responsible for confirming and attributing the deaths that occurred in their counties", Division of Emergency Management spokesman Alberto Moscoso said in an email to The News Service of Florida on Monday.

Monroe County officials and Sheriff Rick Ramsay said it was time to allow residents to bring in friends, family and contractors to begin the task of rebuilding.

For days, evacuees from the Lower and Middle Keys were turned away from a checkpoint state authorities set up near mile marker 74 on the Overseas Highway.

While much progress has been made, more than 675,000 accounts are still without power.

Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi said: 'We know there will be many challenges ahead, especially for our hardest hit areas in the Lower Keys. The hardest-hit states included Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.

The bill is identical to legislation proposed in 2006 that was shot down by the Legislature after nursing home owners protested, said Brian Lee, who served as the state's Long-Term Care Ombudsman until he was ousted by Scott in 2011.

"They're our citizens. they're our countrymen in Key West and we want to help them in any way we can", said another pilot, Steve Purello.

Brice Barr, who owns a charter fishing boat business in Key West, said he would like to head back south.

Hurricane Irma tracked up the western side of Florida so it's perhaps a little surprising that so far the greatest proportion of claims filed are seen in counties on the east coast, such as Broward, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Volusia, Brevard Seminole, Orange and Osceola. Nursing homes and assisted-living facilities would have until mid-November to carry out the requirements.

"I am livid. We should all be besides ourselves", the congresswoman said about their deaths.

Hurricane Irma proved fatal to eight patients in a Hollywood Hills nursing home, which lost power and air conditioning during the storm. Police have said the deaths are under investigation.
