SEBRING — Despite Hurricane Irma’s heavy rains and high winds, apparently no one was killed or seriously injured during the storm, said Scott Dressel, public information officer for the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office.

The county had plenty of EMS calls and there were some minor injuries. They also had hundreds of calls to respond to and follow up, Dressel said. As of Monday morning, they had cleared most of the calls, he said.
