Key Haven, Florida
Key Haven is an unincorporated community on Raccoon Key, an island in the lower Florida Keys approximately one mile east of the island of Key West. It is a suburb of greater Key West, and houses approximately a thousand residents. The city limits of Key West on northern Stock Island are separated from Key Haven by a channel about a quarter mile wide.
The island, being only 2–3 ft above the high tide mark, was covered with 4–5 ft of seawater from the 8 ft (2.4 m) storm surge of Hurricane Wilma on October 24, 2005. Nearly every car on the island was destroyed, and many homes damaged.
