Pictures of Viera Preparing For Hurricane Irma

As I drive through the streets of Viera on the morning of Saturday, September 9th, 2017, the roads are eerily quiet and deserted. Hurricane Irma is due to make landfall later today in the Southern Florida Peninsula, and due to the sheer mass of this storm, the effects are already being felt here in Viera, halfway up the East Coast of Florida.

The few people on the roads are finishing up their last minute preparations before hunkering down for the remainder of the weekend and into Monday. The few businesses remaining open, such as Publix Grocery Store, McDonald's, Walmart, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and a few gas stations, are busy with customers.

The stores are boarded, hurricane shutters have been drawn, sand bags are in place, and the general consensus is Viera is prepared for the worst and hoping for the best. Many people are breathing a small sigh of relief, as Viera seems to have been spared the full wrath of this monster storm. For most of the preceding week, Hurricane Irma was forecast to skirt the East Coast of Florida, making landfall anywhere from Miami, North. Later in the week the forecast track predicted a more Westerly approach to Florida, relieving Viera, and the East Coast of Florida from the full brunt of this storm.

Only time and history will tell what final path Hurricane Irma decided to take, and the damage caused to Viera, and Florida, as a whole. Please follow our Viera Real Estate Blog for post-hurricane updates.
