Transcript for Floridians pull together for each other after Irma's destruction
America strong. Florida strong. There is destruction here. There is also a sense that recovery is beginning. And the people of this state are pulling together for each other. Tonight, as so many now face Irma's destruction, there are scenes everywhere that floral rid yabs are in this together, now rebuilding together. These neighbors in Kissimmee, now helping each other clean up their storm-battered neighborhood. Chris stokes sweeping away mud from his father's floyded convenience store in everglades city. His 9-year-old son right there with the shovel. And so many heroes making sure no one is left behind. Overnight, in St. Augustine, officials braving the waters to save a family stuck in their home, driving that front loader, police chief Robert Hardwick, himself. That family, and their dog, too, safe tonight. Members of the coast guard came from Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee. All to Jacksonville to help those caught in the storm. Rescuing more than 100 people and their pelts, too. And then, there are the heroes who are simply getting back to work. This man, trudging through knee-deep water for more than a mile to get his supermarket uniform, saying, he wanted to go back to work. "I want to help." So many here helping to rebuild after hurricane Irma. So many of you have been tweeting me during the hurricane coverage with thoughts and prayers for the victims. Tonight, a way to help. "Hand in hand: A benefit for hurricane relief" airs this evening at 8:00/7:00 central, here on ABC. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow.
