Hurricane Ian heads for South Carolina
After leaving a trail of destruction across Florida, Hurricane Ian is expected to make landfall in South Carolina on Friday as either a Category 1 or tropical storm. Aerial photos of the storm’s path through Florida show entire blocks of buildings leveled. Around 2.67 million homes and businesses are without power. Roads, bridges, and houses have been torn apart and flooded.
What’s being done for relief? Rescue crews are still searching for and retrieving stranded Floridians. President Joe Biden promised that his administration would provide whatever local governments need. Power has been restored to about 700,000 people already, according to Eric Silagy, president and CEO of Florida Power & Light Company.
