This image provided by Chris Allen shows the view in Havana, Cuba, from his hotel room - room 1414 - at Hotel Capri in April 2014. Allen’s phone started buzzing as word broke of invisible attacks hitting a U.S. government worker at Havana’s Hotel Capri. Allen’s friends and family had heard an eerily similar story from him before. The tourist from South Carolina had cut short his trip to Cuba two years earlier after numbness spread through all four of his limbs, just minutes after he climbed into bed at the same hotel. Those weren’t the only parallels in Allen’s recounting, which put him in a growing list of Americans with no government connections, asking the same alarming but unanswerable question: Were we victims, too?

In this Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, photo, Ed Swift, president of Key West-based Historic Tours of America, speaks during an interview, in Key West, Fla. "When housing is eliminated, as it was in this storm, there's literally no place to go. There's no suburbs, there's no driving for an hour and a half to find someplace to live. That's just not possible here," said Swift. As rents in the Keys rose over the last 20 years to $2,000 a month or more for two-bedroom units, Swift and other business owners started building housing in Key West, including dormitory-style accommodations, to keep local employees.
