Last Wednesday, September 28, the devastating Hurricane Ian hit the US state of Florida.

US President Joe Biden called Ian the “deadliest” hurricane ever recorded in Florida.

The damage from its consequences has not yet been established, but thanks to drones, it is possible to assess the degree of destruction.

Hurricane Ian began in southwest Cuba and then moved to Florida, South and North Carolina. The main blow fell on Florida, first on the southern part, and then on the southwest.

The hurricane was accompanied by an increase in water levels, precipitation and powerful winds. The maximum wind speed was 250 km/h.

Storm surge has become a major problem. In the city of Naples, the first floors of many buildings and garages were flooded. The fire station was also completely flooded, resulting in damage to almost all equipment. An emergency room and a helipad were flooded at a hospital in northern Naples.

Much of the Sanibel Dam collapsed and was washed away during the storm, cutting off vehicle access to Sanibel Island and the city on it.

As of October 4th, The total death toll from Hurricane Ian is 90., 83 of which were in Florida. The exact number of dead is still being established, because many of the rubble has not yet been dismantled. Approximately 10 thousand people are considered missing.

Immediately after the end of the hurricane, all emergency services resumed work. The American Red Cross provided shelter and emergency supplies to the victims.

At the same time, robberies and burglaries increased in some areas. Warehouses with sports shoes and clothing were robbed.

This has led Lee County, which has a population of over 750,000, to impose a curfew.

Until now, there are problems with electricity in southwest Florida. Approximately 2.5 million people were left without electricity.

As for the financial part, the exact amount of damage has not yet been established. But it is already known that it is in the range from 47 to 63 billion dollars. It is likely that these numbers will increase in the near future.
