Hendry County Open and Recovering

Although the eastern portion of Hendry county is still recovering from the
storm in the Pioneer, Montura, and Clewiston areas, much of the county is
open and working. The county clerk offices in LaBelle are open, although the
Health Department is closed and schools countywide are closed. There was a
night time curfew in the eastern portion of Hendry including Clewiston since
the first night of the storm. The Special Needs shelter in Clewiston is
open. Eastern Hendry county residents are looking for generators and people
to help yard cleanup.

In other nearby areas, the Sebring airport is closed along with east
coast airports of Vero Beach and Sebastion Municipal. The Lake Wales airport
has been closed since the first storm last month. Northern portions of
Glades county near Buckhead Ridge shows damage to the majority of mobile
homes there. The emergency shelter is open there.
Radio broadcasts to listen for damage reports and recovery info: WAFC in
Clewiston, 99.5 FM, on the east coast with a good radio and outside antenna,
850 AM and 1290 AM.
