President Trump tours storm damage in Naples

Ports Canaveral, Everglades and Tampa Bay began accepting the ships as fuel haulers transported gasoline to stations that went dry.

Fortunately, the loss of life has been limited here in the Southeast, thanks in part to the strong messages of Florida Gov. Rick Scott and other officials urging those in the path of the storm to evacuate.

Florida Power & Light said residents on the east coast of the state should expect to have power back by Sunday, while those on the west coast should have power by September 22. Roughly 30,000 utility crews had come from out of state to help in the effort.

Harvey hit the Gulf Coast near Rockport, Texas as a Category 4 storm and then stalled as a much weaker tropical storm where it dumped a colossal amount of water on the Houston area. "We are doing everything possible to get those structures back up in place so we can get back to normal".

The 9 million without power is an improvement from the 13 million left in the dark as of Monday.

Other areas of the state, however, remain largely incapacitated, including the Florida Keys, where an estimated quarter of the homes were destroyed. "But I know that at a certain point it ends for you, and we can't let it end", Trump said. "We want to do everything we can".

"We're probably looking at across-the-board 15 to 20 per cent increase in property insurance costs over the next year", says Brad Hubbard, the Tampa owner of an insurance agency and an engineering consulting firm specializing in flood risk.

Another member of his administration also pooh-poohed the effects of climate change on the hurricanes.

Visiting Texas a few days after Trump, Pence took a more active approach, clearing downed tree branches in a sweat-soaked shirt and leading a prayer circle at a damaged church.

"Look at this room behind us", he said Tuesday while nodding at the dozens of people staffing the EOC. "It's more about keeping everybody alive".

"I saw him a couple of nights afterward at an event in NY, and I walked over to thank him for being a good sport and he really impressed on me then that I had taken it too far", Meyers recalled to The Hollywood Reporter in 2016. They have focused chiefly on scrambling to get government aid to stricken states.

Florida authorities were conducting a criminal investigation meanwhile into the eight deaths at the Hollywood nursing home, which had been without air conditioning since Irma struck.

"We can't sleep in peace because of the thieves", said Yovanny Roque, 48. "It's all happening right now".
