Navarre Press had the opportunity to interview a few people who evacuated from Hurricane Irma to our area. Some came here because they knew something about us and others just happened by and decided to stay. They will be leaving soon to find out whether or not their home survived the storm. We will follow up with them in a couple of weeks to see how things are going.
Linda and Guy Fogel from Cape Coral
How many evacuated with you? Just the two of us.
When did you decide to evacuate? Tuesday, Sept. 5.
What made you pull the trigger on evacuating? Cape Coral is a low area with lots of canals prone to flooding so we anticipated things could get bad if Irma came close—let alone a direct hit.
What preparations did you make before you left? Stocked up on water and snacks for the drive north. We’re in a rental with a house under construction so we have two residences to worry about.
