Hurricane Irma may be over, but the cleanup has just begun. If you are in desperate need of supplies, some supermarkets are reopening their doors quickly. However, it's important to remember that if you don't have to be on the streets, you should stay home and keep roads clear for first responders and utility workers. Also, debris like trees and downed power lines can pose a risk. It's probably best if you just enjoy having Monday off from school or work at home.

But if you need to get out of your house, here's what has opened so far.
