As residents and management return from evacuation, it is with anticipation and heavy hearts of concern. First the good news: As far as we know, no one was hurt and no Terra Mar Village property owners "lost" their homes to this storm. In general, it seems there is less wind related damage to trees, carports, and Florida room's then after Mathew. However, for those directly affected, there is much to clean up and rebuild. If you do not have insurance, please contact FEMA at https://www.disasterassistance.gov and let us know the "ins and outs" for others.
The bad news: Irma damaged most of the piers on the ICW with a heavy beating of storm surge, waves, and wind. Our pier looks to have come through better then others. We will do all that we can to assess damage and make repairs as quickly and economically as possible.
Power is still out in the Village and according to an automated message, FPL hopes to have the power back on by the end of this weekend (but hopefully sooner).
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the thousands of families, many who lost everything, in the wake of "Harvey" and "Irma." Now is the time to count our blessings, deal with the tasks at hand, and focus on the positives.
