Allapattah tenants who had been sleeping in parking lot will be moved to hotel rooms

The faces of residents of the Civic Towers in Allapattah who had been ordered to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma reflected a different expression on Wednesday after they were informed that at least 50 of them will moved off the street and into hotels. The decision comes after more than a week of back-and-forth exchanges between building owners and community leaders on what to do about some 80 tenants who had been sleeping in their cars and beneath tarps at the complex parking lot and adjacent streets.
