Gov. Rick Scott will get an aerial view Monday of damage to the Florida Keys from Hurricane Irma.
The governor’s office said Scott is flying with a U.S. Coast Guard crew, including Vice Admiral Karl Schultz, from Mobile, Alabama, to the Keys.
The plane was expected to briefly land in Key West to drop off Coast Guard damage-assessment crews. Irma made its initial Florida landfall about 9 a.m. Sunday at Cudjoe Key – less than 30 miles northeast of Key West – with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.
