boats destroyed in hurricane Irma

Half of the Keys' economy depends directly on tourism — a $2.7 billion industry — according to county officials. [ video ] 

 

On the Key West waterfront, several sailboats appeared to have been knocked loose from their moorings and were banging against the concrete dock, according to webcam images and social media.

In the upper Keys, water blocked parts of some northbound lanes of U.S. 1, videos and photos showed. Water levels were 3 feet above normal by 10 a.m., the weather service said. Key West’s highest point is just 18 feet above sea level.

 

 

“Everything is underwater, I mean everything,” said Larry Kahn, an editor for the local newspaper The Keynoter. Kahn has been riding out the storm in a shelter that has no power or supplies.

Sunday night, Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay instituted an indefinite dusk-to-dawn curfew to reduce travel danger and the risk of looting.

"Anyone out after the designated times is subject to arrest," he said in a statement.

Latest Post on Social Wall Activity Stream

Hi all! I just wanted to introduce us. My wife and I have been living aboard in the Pacific Northwest for a year now. We try to go cruising as much as possible but are new and are mostly fair weather sailors. We also have a YouTube channel if anyone is interested. We love following other people's journeys as well. Glad to be here and hope we can learn more and socialize with more sailors.
