**it's such arrogant and anecdotal horse shit to say this storm was over-hyped/fake news/over blown
**
**how on earth can any half human caring individual say such a stupid thing?
**
**Really?
**
**have you not observed the devastation this storm caused?
**
**totally destroyed islands - ruined, wiped out?
**
**drop your fucking ego for a split second....
**
**is your joy that it veered further than expected into Cuba to help downgrade Irma to a category 3 and then went slightly farther west of Florida?
**
**they get hit harder so you don't?
**
**and all you can say is - fake news/over blown/hyped
**
**grow up and educate yourself.
**
**christ almighty
**
**this storm has caused devastation and life altering changes to thousands on people...and killed others
**
**just because your little miniscule/provincial world is ok...
**
**fuck me.

*Hello from the other side!
*
*I moved to Key West, FL last year. I'm currently a "refugee" and have been away from my home for almost 2 weeks now. The evacuation order was lifted yesterday, but I'm delaying my return a couple more days because electric is unstable, water is under a boil advisory and only today was available 24/7, and supplies are low.
*
*Fortunately, the house I live in allegedly made it through without any serious damage. There was some water intrusion but I need to see for myself how bad. The islands north of Key West were devastated, many almost entirely wiped out.
*
*This was my first hurricane, and I can tell you that the problem is that the storm was as large as the state itself. It was impossible to know where it would turn, or where it would make landfall. I'm in Naples right now (was in Orlando earlier) and affects are obvious. Thank goodness everyone prepared.
*
*It's ridiculous to say this storm was over-hyped. I can tell you this because I'm living it and witnessing it first hand. A few of my friends did lose everything. The east coast was lucky this time, but if the wings of the butterfly changed slightly it's completely possible that FLL or MIA would be off the map, or at least close to it.
*
*Glad to see nothing has changed here! Cheers!

I'm just going to follow up to everyone here in one place:

It's nice to "see" you all again! Hope everyone is well and life is that life is gentle and kind. I don't pop over here too much anymore, but maybe I will in the future...

I've been back at home now for just over 36 hours and just dealing with the cleanup. Thankfully no major damage at home, although there was water intrusion/mold in the main house and some downed trees in the yard. The pool was BLACK and had tadpoles! Fence is gone in places and a big strong metal door got ripped off its hinges!

I can't really describe the rest of the Keys. Some of them are definitely in really bad shape. A lot of people lost a everything. Thankfully the government and NGOs have been here really helping out. It gives you a sense of pride to see this country come together and rebuild after such a terrible event. My heart goes out to all the others in the world affected by natural disasters and war... especially the helpless refugees who have no choice but to run.
