Bonita Springs' Shangri-La resort, Buffalo Chips restaurant weather Hurricane Irma
Although parts of Bonita Springs remained flooded Tuesday — more than a week after Hurricane Irma roared across Southwest Florida — some of the city's venerable institutions weathered the storm.
The Shangri-La Springs, a historic resort in downtown Bonita Springs that was built in 1921, sustained "zero damage" to its building, General Manager Lee Bellamy said, and the property's two 80-year-old Mysore fig trees will pull through, too.
"They just need to get cleaned up," Bellamy said of the famous trees, which tower over the property's courtyard and had some of their mighty branches mangled by the powerful winds.
"They're going to be fine. ... Didn't damage the root system at all."
The giant Mysore fig trees are two of only four in all of Southwest Florida, said John Domanski, the property's facilities and maintenance manager.
That number grew even smaller after the ferocious hurricane uprooted a large Mysore fig tree on the property of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. Another — bigger — Mysore fig tree at the Estates survived the storm.
"These are pretty strong trees," Domanski said.
