Florida residents' humanity before Hurricane Irma

Pam Brekke had traveled 30 miles from Sanford, Fla., to a Lowe's in Orlando that got a surprise shipment of 216 generators amid the Irma frenzy, according to Nancy Alvarez of ABC affiliate WFTV.

  • Pam was "next in line to purchase a generator when she watched workers load the final unit onto a cart for the customer who was standing before her in line."
  • That customer, Ramon Santiago, "walked up and insisted she take his." He didn't even know why she was crying.
  • It turns out that her father's on oxygen, and she was worried about taking care of him during the storm.
