damage done; etc.

Regarding South Florida libraries:

    Power has been restored to at least parts of the University of
    Miami. Messages from some the UM Registrar's Office have begun to
    get to UF.

    No contact with the Libraries at UM, FIU, FAU, Broward Co. Public or
    Miami/Dade Co. Public.

    UF has made contact with its IFAS Homestead station, but not the
    library. Staff are trying to make one building "livable"
