brevard county hurricane evacuations

At least a handful of residents along the Brevard County coast chose to wait one more night before evacuating, so they could raise a toast against Hurricane Irma on the way out.

At a small ocean-side bar along Cocoa Beach Friday called the Sandbar, dozens of long-time residents of the barrier islands gathered for a “hurricane party”. Many drank the bar’s signature drink – also named the hurricane – while stepping out onto the beach one more time before the storm would start blowing in.
