Florida opens shelters for those who choose to ride out Hurricane Irma

Florida opens shelters for those who choose to ride out Hurricane Irma”

A Marathon man is dead after responders found him in a truck in the Florida Keys amid Hurricane Irma's storms. We at the Key West National Weather Service office are staying to face the storm and assist in our primary mission, which is protecting the lives and property of the American people.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, first responders patrolling the area during a lull in stormy conditions located the driver near 98th Street and US 1, Saturday.

Photos show the truck was nearly completely wrapped around a tree.

They then reported the crash scene to the sheriff's office. "Although Sheriff Rick Ramsay has pulled regular patrols because he does not want to endanger his employees, he evaluated the conditions outside and decided he would lead a team himself to recover the body".

"I just felt we needed to try", Ramsay said in a news release. "They quickly formulated plans to make the move safely, were able to procure buses for the transport, and got on the road without incident".

The Florida Highway Patrol will investigate the crash when it is safe to do so.
