Orlando is getting a storm but nothing like the west coast. All the scenes on the tv are from the gulf coast, not Orlando. She will be fine.

My MIL lives in Lakeland and has no power. Possibly your friend is in the same position and has run out of phone battery? Hope you get good news soon.

I'm sorry. It is very stressful. Orlando is very far inland, it hasn't been as hard hit as Ft Myers. There are reports of flooding from heavy rainfall in the Orlando area and some wind damage. But it hasn't been affected by the storm surge, which is the cause of most of the damage on the coast.

My family on the east coast side have just got power back. Those on the gulf coast side have missed the worst of it. Hopefully you will hear from her soon.

My colleague's family are Cuban. She was a little bit frantic yesterday as her family hadn't phoned. It turns out only her sister had some battery to send her a message. The electricity is a massive problem. It's most likely just that. Try not to worry.
