HURRICANE IAN RECOVERY
Last Updated: Monday, December 19, 2022
With Hurricane Season finally behind us, we are continuing to make progress on Ft. Myers Beach. DiamondHead Beach Resort has begun a phased reopening, with limited rooms available for those in need of accommodations. Cabanas Beach Bar & Grille has re-opened upstairs in the Coste restaurant space and terrace! While power has been restored to GullWing and Lovers Key, we are not certain when we will begin their phased reopening, however every day is one step closer.
NEW! - RED CROSS FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE
The American Red Cross has worked closely with partners to provide emergency shelter, food, water, relief supplies, emotional support and health services to people in need. Thanks to our generous donors, the Red Cross is now starting to get emergency financial assistance into the hands of Florida residents whose homes were severely impacted.
This financial assistance will allow people to make their own decisions and prioritize what their family needs most to start recovering. Funds can help families replace clothes or food, offset transportation costs, or support any other immediate need. Spending these funds locally will also support local communities as they begin recovering. Those who may not meet the criteria for financial assistance will have the opportunity to connect with other Red Cross and community resources and referrals.
There are two locations in Ft. Myers to apply for assistance - CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
