    The gas station guy is in his car planning to go check out his house. Apparently someone already told him that it was in 6ft of water.

    ETA: not going now, but later.

    Monroe County is closed until further notice, no one even knows how their homes or businesses are doing. Is any media reporting on the Keys?

    That's why people are so frightened.. There's another 92 miles of inhabited islands before reaching Key West. :(

    Yikes these pictures and video make me anxious! Glad my folks evacuated days ago and are safe in Davenport away from the coast!

    Wow . . . what a photo. Glad that the majority of the residents in the Keys left for safer areas, prior to the storm.

    The guy at the gas station made a video of some of the damage in Islamorada. They chose to stay to ensure people could get fuel on the way out and now the help that's coming in. That's incredibly selfless.

    These people need to stop driving on the bridges though! County officials have put out multiple notices, yet still people are driving.

    Here's a few other photos from a storm chaser on Twitter, Sugarloaf Key.

    Has anything heard anything about the Key Deer?

    I've been searching and haven't found any thing. There's still islands that don't have pics or reports. I know Marco Rubio flew in a littler earlier.. hopefully we will hear something about all of the islands soon!

    I don't know if the Keys will be open any time soon.. I hope I'm wrong.

    I'm sure there's gonna be plenty more where this came from. People need to realize that they were evacuated for a reason. They're not being allowed back for a reason. It's not just because the authorities want to be a pain about it, obviously there's dangers and such that are going to prevent people from safely returning home.

    I agree. Everyone's just worried about the lack of communications available. I think we'll hear more tonight and it may calm people down.

    I can't imagine not hearing from my family in 24hrs after a Cat 4 storm hit and not being able to get to where they are. There was rumors that the people who are there now may be evacuated, but I don't see how that would be possible. I don't think you can physically force people to leave.

    This happens with any and all storms though. Comm goes down. If people don't want to go, you have them sign a waiver that they acknowledge they're own their own and they (or their families) can't pursue any legal action due to their declining to leave amid grave danger. It's a grim outlook on it, but some people just aren't gonna go.
