World Care is taking supplies collected in Tucson to Florida, where residents are still recovering after Hurricane Irma tore through the state last month.

Today, Governor Rick Scott toured the damage in the Florida Keys. This area took a direct hit when the hurricane made landfall as a category four hurricane.

Initial estimates report that Irma destroyed 25 percent of houses there.

Governor Scott says getting electrical service fully restored is a top priority.
