Siesta Key Sustains Minimal Damage From Hurricane Irma

| October 1, 2017

Whether you want to believe an American Indian blessing keeps Siesta Key safe or perhaps its location shelters this
special barrier island from a direct hit; one thing was certain, a collective sigh of relief could be felt when residents
returned home to find minimal damage to property.    

Although some residents and businesses lost power for about a week and several large downed trees had to be
cleared, most agree: The Key fared much better than expected.  Following are some photos of the damage hurricane
Irma left in her wake.
