As Hurricane Irma heads north leaving a trail of destruction behind, Miami-Dade and Broward counties remain shuttered. But once the storm clears, South Floridians will begin the process of assessing damage and cleaning up.
Already, two cranes have toppled in downtown Miami and Edgewater, roofs flew off and cars were crushed by trees at a mobile home park in Sweetwater.
In the coming days, schools, governments, and businesses will assess when they can reopen. Some have already made those announcements. Miami-Dade public schools will remain closed through Tuesday, while University of Miami pushed that date to Monday, Sept. 18.
