Hurricane Irma - Resilience
the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness:
"the often remarkable resilience of so many British institutions"
the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity:
"nylon is excellent in wearability and resilience"
Hurricane Irma has come and left her mark on SWFL. The landscape has changed, buildings damaged, and streets flooded.
But, the resounding theme is resilience.
Neighbors helping neighbors, strangers helping strangers.
The following is from Collier County Commissioner Andy Solis:
As the community continues to recover in the wake of Hurricane Irma, county services will begin to resume; the services below will open tomorrow morning for their normal business hours. Some of these might be helpful to those with children home from school, or provide a cool place to spend some time for those yet to have power restored. Remember that the county museums are free, and the libraries have power for charging and internet access. Your District 2 office will also be open tomorrow!
