Hurricane Ian hits Florida
Hurricane Ian reached Florida on Wednesday.
This week, about 2.5 million Floridians were asked to leave their homes and move inland or to higher ground to avoid the winds and flooding. Many people didn’t leave, braving the storm at home even as local emergency services were temporarily suspended.
“You look at the number of people that are on the southwest coast of Florida, for example. Fortunately, most of them are not going to have their homes destroyed. But most of them are going tolose power,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said at a briefing Wednesday morning.
What does the damage look like? And what happens next? We discuss what’s happening on the ground with Florida-based reporters.
