Breaking news. 9/30/22 9:15 am.   A brave resident. Billy Kunkler,  was looking to help. He rescued one stranded person. (Dick Downs), but he discovered a male body floating in a car port. That person was identified as Ron Grabkowski.  (This info is from Billy’s report on the Trop. Facebook page.)

Tropicana is a “total disaster” and is still flooded.  According to our reporter, “No one in the park was unscathed.” A home on the lake was found to be badly damaged and flooded.

The water surge is the worst to ever hit Fort Myers.
