Good morning! Over all we feel Cypress Lakes weathered the storm quite well. Flooding has receeding signifacantly in the last 24 hours...Not back to normal by any means. The good news is: The front gate is now able to receive residents! I know many still have not been back to their homes and are anxiously waiting. We appreciate all the photos people have posted but also realize everyone wants to get back home...no place like it! We are in the 20% of Polk county that has power and water...almost felt guilty about drinking that cup of coffee this amorning in the AC. Becareful everyone driving; Street lights still out and people are very distracted on the roads. Many have faced devastation beyond comprehension.
