CBS 13 speaks with Mainer helping in Florida
PORTLAND (WGME) – CBS 13 spoke with a Mainer helping Florida’s disaster relief Monday.
Jim Cyr says he arrived in Florida Friday and helped set up an evacuation shelter at a school in the town of LaBelle, only about an hour from where Irma made landfall.
Cyr, who used to be a reporter for CBS 13, says it was a stressful weekend.
Cyr says some who evacuated won't have homes to return to.
The red cross has set up more permanent shelters for those people.
