SEBRING — As Highlands County residents battened down the hatches and hunkered down the night of Sunday, Sept. 10, a gigantic Hurricane Irma barreled her way through the county.
The howling winds tore roofs, soffits and gutters from homes and businesses. The lashing rains caused lakes to overflow their banks, turning roads into rivers.

Through it all, the communities came together, rolled up their sleeves and pitched in to get back to normal.
