Governor Scott: 90 percent of power restored to Florida residents

In other areas, days after Irma, a major hurricane, tore through Florida, residents are slowly returning to find ruins in some of the hardest-hit neighborhoods. Students unable to return to their home districts in the near future will be able to enroll in comparable FLVS classes and then re-enroll later at their old brick-and-mortar schools.

Although President Donald Trump signed a law on September 8 allocating $15.25 billion in additional disaster-relief funds to storm victims and affected areas, the measure didn't include any additional money for the flood-insurance program. So the originally scheduled December 16 date is back on.

"We've got a long road to go, we've got activity that will be occurring here on the recovery side for months", Price said at a news conference.

As of Sunday, according to the governor's office, 205 assisted living communities in the state still were using generators after Hurricane Irma; 2,475 assisted living communities said they had power, 176 reported being closed and 194 reported post-storm evacuations.

Officials in Monroe County opened up USA 1 on Saturday all the way south to Marathon for residents, business owners, disaster workers and supply trucks.

Initial estimates show 20 percent of Florida Keys homes "are not livable right now", Martin Senterfitt, Monroe County's director of emergency management said.

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.

Florida's home-insurance market relies heavily on small and mid-size insurers after brand-name national insurers scaled back their presence in the state in order to reduce their exposure to hurricanes.

Give your time: The American Red Cross and United Way of Miami-Dade are calling for volunteers to help with relief efforts. "They also helped restore power to a nursing home in four hours after a downed wire caused the residents to lose power", Dominion Energy spokesperson Rayhan Daudani said.

Rite Aid Corporation (RAD) Bond Prices Rise 3.3%
Howard Hughes Medical Institute's holdings in Rite Aid Corporation were worth $305,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. That would leave Rite Aid a distant No. 3 after the sale of nearly half of its roughly 4,500 stores in the United States.

Barr and his wife fled to his parents' home in the northern Florida ahead of the storm, he told CNN affiliate WCJB, and are watching for their moment to return. That's almost 4 percent of all utility accounts in the state.

"The Houston metropolitan area and the impacted Florida counties alone accounted for 8 percent of all US existing home sales in 2016", said Mark Fleming, chief economist at First American.

More counties may be added to that list in the coming days. Power has been restored for at least 89%, the agency said.

In some parts of our region, Irma's winds did not steadily exceed hurricane force and, while there was flooding, it was largely isolated and not severe.

The trucks took off early Monday with a police escort.

Utilities officials have been working with FPL to get service back to lift stations across Sarasota County.

Also, the Broward County count is at six, without listing any of eight residents of a sweltering Hollywood nursing home who died Wednesday.

Another concentration of claims filed is seen around the area where hurricane Irma made landfall, in Collier and Lee county. Power might blip on and off through the day.
