As we begin a new hurricane season, we take a look back at lessons learned from Hurricane Irma.

For instance when the leading edge of Hurricane Irma struck the Florida Keys, it almost immediately knocked out power – leaving residents from Key West to Key Largo without cell phones, internet service or television.
