The Lombardo family was there from Fort Meyers. When their area evacuated, they came up north

When we touched base with the family during the eye of the storm while things were much calmer. They said their home is a little damaged but not flooded.

They're just grateful to be safe.

"We knew we were getting out of the frying pan into the fire," said Tony Lombardo. "Other people have it worse right now."
