Tampa business owners feel impacts of Hurricane Ian
The family-owned flower shop, Jennie's Flowers of Tampa Bay, also have a location in Ft. Myers and they are sending relief south to help get employees hit hard by Hurricane Ian back open. Florida is a big state, but connections across the region run deep. The manager of Ft. Myers Florist told ABC Action News reporter Michael Paluska that the help they received from Tampa got them back open. "So many people that are hit down here have connections to Tampa; it's a small world," Paluska said to Jean Marie Rakic. "Thank goodness," she responded.
