Another major Florida Keys resort is reopening after suffering heavy damage from Hurricane Irma.
Islamorada's iconic Cheeca Lodge Resort & Spa resumes operations for the first time this Friday, after more than six months since Irma's storm surge devastated the Keys.
The resort's lobby and landscaping were hit hard, and a 525-foot-long oceanside dock was destroyed.
Many of the rooms were flooded.
After a $25 million dollar face lift, tourism officials say 80 percent of the Florida Keys' lodging properties can now host visitors.
