Florida Keys Hopes For Millions From FEMA For Irma Damage

Officials in the Florida Keys are looking for federal funds to reimburse expenses related to Hurricane Irma.

Monroe County officials traveled to Washington DC last week to meet with FEMA officials. 

The county has submitted about $16 million in expenses for reimbursement. So far, FEMA has approved just a fraction of that -- $3.9 million. Now the county is waiting for the state's Department of Emergency Management to sign off.

Monroe County has estimated a preliminary cost of $93.3 million for Irma expenses. 

The Florida Keys sustained the heaviest damage from Irma after it struck as a Category 4, leaving parts of the island chain without power and water.
