Residents in areas greatly impacted by Hurricane Matthew received a visit from Mayor Lenny Curry today. Joined by JFRD, JSO and FEMA representatives, the mayor provided water and food to residents in homes that suffered severe damage from the storm.
“Although it was tough to see damaged homes, trees through roofs and downed power lines, I am so glad residents in these areas evacuated,” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “Based on what I saw today, many lives could have been lost as a result of the destruction caused by Hurricane Matthew.”
The mayor visited neighborhoods in the Ft. Caroline, Mayport and Northside areas - located in evacuation zones A, B and C. In addition, he visited Jacksonville fire stations and thanked first responders for their hard work and commitment to public safety.
