BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. A state of emergency for the city has been extended through Sept. 20.

Mayor Peter Simmons signed a resolution keeping the state of emergency in place as the effects of Hurricane Irma continue to cause widespread problems.

Several neighborhoods near the Imperial River are still under floodwaters, and the city remains under a nightly 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew.

The state of emergency allows greater access to emergency funding.
