West Grove comes together to stay cool and fed, post-Irma
It’s been three days since Irma came to town. Much of Miami-Dade is still without power and in West Coconut Grove that means residents are feeling hot, helpless, and like there’s no end in sight.
Miami City Commissioners Ken Russell, Francis Suarez, and their staff hauled bags of ice, water bottles and helped host a barbecue cook-out on Tuesday afternoon at Elizabeth Virrick Park.
Nearby residents who needed a good meal and something to keep them cool came out to eat and laugh with each other.
