FEMA was in Iona on Wednesday, surveying the damage from Sunday’s tornado. They marked buildings to let people know to stay out because they are unsafe.

WINK News followed along as law enforcement and Lee County Emergency Management went from neighborhood to neighborhood picking up the pieces and surveying the damage

Even though the debris is still piling up around them, the spirit in the Century 21 Mobile Home Park is as high as ever.

“Do you wanna take a ride?? To the candy shop. It’s a nice trip,” sang Oliver and Lynn.

Oliver is a Cockatoo. He and his owner Lynn survived the tornado. The roof of their home is nearly completely blown off.

Lynn still won’t let the smile leave her face despite the damage.

While enjoying Oliver and Lynn’s joy and strength, WINK News watched as Andres Artis with FEMA assessed the damage. Lee County Code Enforcement was escorting him.

He went from the Tropicana Mobile Home Community to the Century 21 community.
