Hurricane Idalia made landfall in Florida this morning, ripping through the state’s Gulf Coast and flooding roads across the state’s coastal cities. Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey joins Yahoo Finance Live to discuss the relief being dispersed to residents, including efforts to restore electricity to areas most afflicted by the storm. “As soon as the storm moved out, of course, we sent our first responders out first and foremost to check on citizens and make sure everyone is safe and healthy and survived the storm in and of itself, and then immediately set utility crews out,” Mayor Dailey says. Dailey notes how the region is “a little lucky” to the extent of the damages against what was previously forecasted about Hurricane Idalia’s upgrade from a tropical storm, but was thankful officials and first responders were still prepared for the worst. “We are still highly encouraging all residents, stay inside, check on your friends and family, check on your neighbors, but we still have a lot of work to do,” Dailey says on the post-hurricane assessment. “We have a lot of roads that are still blocked, we got trees down everywhere, we gotpower lines down everywhere. We need to make sure that we have a safe community and an environment that allows utility workers to go out into their job.”
