Community Rallies Together to be #Firstcoaststrong

Last week, Jacksonville joined cities around the state that were left battered and bruised by Hurricane Irma.  The 360 mile wide massive hurricane left no county unturned, as it wound itself up the state.  The result included massive flooding, power outages, downed trees and debris that will cost millions to remove. Just as the sun came out following that rainy, Monday, September 11th, so did the volunteers and sense of connection as First Coast citizens joined forces to make sure the needs of others were met.  Food giveaways, electric recharge stops and air conditioned shelters were among the relief options available.  The Mormons were also an extra special sight in urban communities as they cut  many of the large downed tress. Our streets may have flooded and power out for days, but there is no doubt that Jacksonville remains First Coast Strong.
