Riviera Beach is among those communities relieved Hurricane Matthew had less bark than bite.
“All we have is the best of it,” Police spokesperson Rose Anne Brown, asked to outline the best and worst of the city’s storm experience.
The city’s assessment team has found “very little damage,” other than streets that had trees down, she said. All those trees have been cleared away. The public beach also emerged in fine shape, Brown said.
The city experienced power outages, some of which were continuing as of 12:15 p.m. on Friday. “Everything has been given to FPL,” which has told city officials that power will be completely restored by the end of the day. “We’re holding them to their word,” she said.
Public bch is fine. Still assessing up around onds.
