Spoke to one of the friends (Naples FL) I mentioned earlier (speaking of power outages) and as of yesterday:
Got power, however no cell service, no cable, no internet, and no phone.
Turns out that a few mistakes were made in the evacuation. Like the $600 in groceries that were in the two fridges, total loss. No window covers. Somehow the few long guns were left, yet all the handguns were brought along.
More to come.
