If you drive down the main roads of Flagler County - there isn't much evidence of the hurricane we saw just over a week ago. The City of Palm Coast began clean up as soon as it was safe to do so, while FPL worked to restore power and TV/Internet providers came behind them restoring a sense of normalcy to our community.
"We're fortunate — very, very fortunate. But it's still a major event for us," City Manager Jim Landon said. "When we set priorities of getting something done, it’s all hands on deck and they get it done."

More than 20 stores and restaurants were open by 7 a.m. Tuesday September 12th - Flagler County went to work - making sure that residents could get a hot meal or purchase groceries.
Most of Flagler County made it through Hurricane Irma generally unscathed - only 2 homes were destroyed - one by fire and one by a falling tree. Still, many homes needed repair and clean up - and that's where we show what it means to be #FlaglerStrong
Flagler Palm Coast High School Football players cleaned up Flagler Beach after Hurricane Irma - focusing on the home of Bill and Fran Noble, both teachers at FPC for over 30 years each. Their home flooded during the storm. Thanks to FPC, the Noble's are on their way to restoration.
Woody's provided meals to linemen working to restore our power.
All in all, only 8 days after the hurricane - Flagler is thriving. Our businesses are open, are homes are standing, neighbors are helping neighbors and we will always be #FlaglerStrong
