Captain Lee Rosbach was just one of the millions of Florida residents bracing for Hurricane Irma as it hit the Sunshine State this weekend. The Below Deck boss kept fans updated on the storm in his neck of the woods in Fort Lauderdale before, during, and after it passed through.
Captain Lee gave a glimpse into his storm prep on Instagram, making sure he had some water on hand in case he needed it.
He then captured the scary scene outside as Hurricane Irma arrived, bringing gusts of wind and a downpour of rain with it.
Captain Lee eventually ventured outside when things seemed to calm down a bit. He videos showed the aftermath of Hurricane Irma with trees down and ankle-deep water flooding the street of his neighborhood. "OK, first shots outside with a little break in the action, and it's not real pretty," he said in one video on Instagram. "Just everywhere you see there's havoc and devastation."
But Captain Lee expressed his gratitude that there wasn't more damage done. "We've been lucky," he said in another video of the impact of the storm.
Captain Lee later updated fans on Twitter saying that the "worst is over." "The power needs to be restored and the rebuilding and clean up begins," he tweeted Sunday. "We all pull together and the load isn't quite so heavy."
