posted by Jessi Minneci -

A Florida Keys sea turtle rehabilitation facility, The Turtle Hospital of Marathon, has some new arrivals following Hurricane Irma.

Rescued sea creatures sat in tanks fed by water pumped with a generator on Wednesday.

A tiny green sea turtle rescued by a Monroe County emergency employee from storm rubble was the first rescue after the hurricane. It was in a tiny plastic bin flipping around.

Hospital director Richie Moretti offered a quip about what they chose to call her.

He said: "Guess her name? Irma."
