Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Wednesday tweeted support for the workers helping clean up in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

Irma hit Florida early Saturday as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. It knocked power out for millions of people and left many without water service. To turn power back on, work crews must replace "nearly 3,000 poles and 950 miles of wire" in the state, Duke Energy said, according to NPR.
