Hurricane hits

Punta Gorda isn’t pretty:

Dennis,

Charlie is hitting Charleston right now. We are without power and lots of rain and wind but no major damage so far. The storm is moving very fast I think that is a good thing.

I have been watching the Florida news. When it clears here I plan on flying down. Do you know of any numbers to call to see what type of supplies are needed in Fort Myers? I can pack up the plane to gross weight with whatever is needed

The damage is more than just Punta Gorda; Many killed there.
Depending upon the airport, many are dangerous. At very least, they are littered with debris.
Call:
FEMA
Angel Flight
County Sheriff’s office
However, many counties, with different needs because this spanned west to east coast.
1 guy got killed when he went outside to smoke a cigarette.
Moral:
Cigarettes Kill
(Forgive my morbid humor, but this stuff is serious)
