Hurricane Ian Makes Landfall In Florida
Hurricane Ian made landfall along the southwest coast of Florida as a powerful category 4 storm. It was the strongest hurricane landfall ever on the west coast of the peninsula.
Cars are floating down the streets and some houses are completely flooded. The strong winds are blowing away debris, ripping down trees, setting off alarms and knocking out power lines. Water in some areas reached to record highs that the city has been recording since 1965.
Some residents said the wind was so strong that they couldn’t see anything out of their windows.
Earlier this week, the city and local governments issued a mandatory evacuation for more than 1.7 million residents across the southwest counties. For those who chose to stay, the local authorities warned those people to shelter in place and not to venture outside.
Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis said that Hurricane Ian, at minimum, will be a very strong category 4 hurricane that ranks as one of the top five to ever hit the Florida peninsula.
Some scientists say that the reason a category 3 to 4 storm occurs in less than three hours is an example of the larger trend that climate change has been on a warming trend for almost a generation.
All the federal agencies are standing by to try and help all the people in Florida. We will have a better picture later today or tomorrow on how much damage this strong hurricane has done.
