Two Million Out of Power and 11 Confirmed Dead in Florida post-Ian

High tide and heavy rainfall, flooding in the southwest of Florida, and the death toll of 11 and rising are all due to the destructive storm currently heading North. Two million residents are out of power, and bridges and roads have been ruined by Ian as of Thursday afternoon. Florida governor DeSantis has asked the people for help, specifically in money. Gov. DeSantis and Mrs. DeSantis have raised about $1.6 million within 24 hours.

Ian hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane but soon unleashed all of its power on Florida and shrunk back to a tropical storm. It will now ascend the Atlantic Coast as a Category 1 hurricane, with South Carolina next on the place to be hit.

Many with relatives in Florida are worried due to the devastation being observed in Florida. Some have driven as far north as Virginia. Ft. Myers was completely flooded due to the storm surge, and it will probably take more than $1.6 million to fix the whole city. Whether a conservative state like Florida will accept federal aid is an interesting political question. In the meantime, folks in Florida are cleaning up the aftermath of Ian, one broken siding at a time.
