The road has become like the sea, and the waves are constantly rushing over it.
The car that could not be evacuated was half submerged in the water, and some even wore swimming suits and made their way through the storm dangerously.
Hurricane Ion, which can reach speeds of up to 240 km/h, has hit southern Florida.
“Today’s flight was the hardest flight I’ve had in six years. I will always remember Ian.”
There was a lot of damage, including flooding in houses and falling trees.
There was flooding in the hospital’s emergency room, and the roof of the intensive care unit was blown off by strong winds.
Even the fire department, which was supposed to rescue people, was submerged in water and had to stop rescue operations for a while.
Millions of homes in Florida were also affected by power outages, which could take days to recover.
“We’ve also seen major flooding in places like Collier County, Sanibel, and Fort Myers Beach. You can see inland flooding caused by flooding. There’s also been significant flooding in some inland counties in the state.”
As Hurricane Ian passed through Florida, it weakened from a Category 4 to a Category 1.
However, strong winds and heavy rain are still accompanying it, and Georgia and South Carolina, which are part of Ian’s migration path, have also entered a state of emergency.
