Evacuees Head Back to Florida Following Irma


Millions are returning to their homes in Florida following Irma, including former WEHT reporter Julie Krizen Wilkinson and her family.

The Wilkinsons evacuated their home in Sarasota Friday to wait out the storm with family in Newburgh.

Julie said they are dreading the heavy traffic on the drive back, but they are more than happy to return to a home almost free of damage.

The Wilkinsons said they plan on driving to Atlanta Wednesday night to break the trip up after reports from friends about bumper to bumper traffic heading back to Florida.
