“We never get hurricanes on Anna Maria Island”
Until just recently this is what you’d have heard. Irma changed all that!
Anna Maria Island was, until the last minute, right in the center of Irma’s path!
For days, residents and travellers alike held their breath and waited for impact. Most thought the island as we know it would be gone.
Then Irma changed direction and passed just to the east. Phew! Under the circumstances this was the best case scenario!
As of this writing power has been restored to much of the island and cleanup has begun. Businesses are opening as they regain power, Florida Power & Light is busy restoring electricity to those who are waiting, the cities have contracted for tree removal for any downed trees, and property owners are cleaning up and making repairs.
Rest assured that if you have plans to visit Anna Maria island will be waiting for you!
Come visit Anna Maria Island!
