Hurricane Irma caused significant destruction in the Florida Keys when it made landfall over the weekend. An unknown number of people chose to stay there during the storm, even though they were ordered to evacuate.

But while officials are planning to rescue more people from the Keys, those who evacuated to Miami and elsewhere are now anxious to get back. Here & Now's Robin Young talks with NPR's Kirk Siegler (@KirkSiegler).

This segment aired on September 12, 2017.
