Florida CFO warns against hiring out-of-state contractors after Ian – Video

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (WBBH) – About a half block from the Peace River in Port Charlotte, Gregg Wood’s home is still standing after the hurricane – but standing a bit crooked now.  “It looked like a bomb had gone off here,” Wood recalled about returning to his property.  “Some of the piers here have tilted. You can even see how they’ve tilted,” Wood said, pointing to the bottom of his home. “Something caused some of the pilings underneath it to come loose.” And not just that. Wood’s roof – like so many others – suffered damage in the storm.
