APAPA President Andrew Jeng Aids Kissimmee Residents in Hurricane Irma Recovery

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Association (APAPA) President Andrew Jeng and other community activists toured the community today to survey the damage Hurricane Irma left behind. Though the storm had weakened to Category 2 by the time it found its way to Central Florida, Irma was strong enough tear off rooftops, uproot trees, tear down power lines and cause major flooding as she passed through. Hundreds of families evacuated according to Governor Scott’s instructions, but for those who couldn’t or didn’t–and even for those who did and returned–Irma’s damage was overwhelming.
