Hurricane Ian tore through portions of Cuba before making landfall along Florida’s coast on Wednesday, September 28. The Category 4 storm produced 150 mph winds and caused extensive damage. Hundreds of thousands of local residents have evacuated their homes. Widespread flooding is causing further damage, and more than 2.5 million people are without power.
Governor Ron DeSantis described the unprecedented situation, and the rising waters left in Ian’s wake, as “basically a 500-year flood event.”
