The eleventh resident of a Hollywood nursing home that was evacuated after a power outage caused by Hurricane Irma has, according to WTVJ. Whereas 6.7 million were left in the dark beginning September 10, 2017, when the storm made landfall, only 100,000 remained without power as of September 19. As Irma approached Florida, an estimated 6.3 million people were directed through mandatory or voluntary evacuations to find shelter inland or further away. The Florida Department of Transportation also suspended construction, clearing work zones to reduce traffic impacts for evacuees. "Suspending tolls was critical to helping Floridians travel safely and quickly during the largest ever evacuation in USA history".

They have been granted license-free freshwater and saltwater fishing and free passes to state parks for one year.
