Irma was the first Category 5 hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season in September and caused widespread and catastrophic damage throughout its long lifetime, particularly in the northeastern Caribbean and the Florida Keys. It was also the most intense hurricane to strike the continental United States since Katrina in 2005, the first major hurricane to make landfall in Florida since Wilma in the same year, and the first Category 4 hurricane to strike the state since Charley in 2004. Total losses from the hurricane are estimated at More than $50 billion in the US alone. KDF teams assisted in the recovery efforts across multiple counties and cities in Florida.
