Brekke's elderly father is on oxygen and she was anxious Irma would knock power out at her home, leaving the family without a way to help her dad. The Hurricane threat is bringing out the best in some Central Florida Residents.

As Hurricane Irma bore down on her state, Pam Brekke drove 30 miles to a Lowe's in Orlando on Thursday morning to buy an emergency generator.

WFTV reported that managers at an Orlando Lowe's store said they received a surprise shipment of 216 generators in advance of the storm. Ramon Santiago didn't know Brekke but gave up his generator for her. Santiago barely speaks English but could understand Brekke's tears. And then the workers got to the very last generator-and it went to the person right in front of Brekke in line. But everywhere she turned, she found nothing but empty shelves, according to WFTV.

"She needed the generator".

"She needs the generator", Santiago told WFTV-TV.

A modest Mr Santiago sought no praise or reward for the act of kindness, and simply said it was clear Ms Brekke needed it more.

The two hugged, and Santiago continued his shopping.

"He's an angel from God is what he is", said Brekke.

It's a gesture Brekke won't soon forget as neighbor help each other at a crucial time.
