In like a lion, out like a lamb – Ian exits Florida as a Tropical Storm

Ian leaves

(ORLANDO, FLA) — Ian is now a Tropical Storm with 65 mph winds as it slowly makes its way across central Florida, but it may strengthen back into a hurricane today as it emerges into the Atlantic and takes aim at Georgia and South Carolina.

Powerful Ian has left millions of Floridians without power today and the entire island of Cuba is dark after its electric grid collapsed.

Palm Beach County also suffered damage from Ian when a dangerous tornado developed in one of the storm’s outer bands.

Storm surge and epic flooding are also a major problem for much of the state in the wake of Ian.

President Biden says his administration has given Florida all the resources local leaders have asked for to deal with Hurricane Ian.
Biden also warned oil companies to not jack up the prices because of the storm.

Once the storm moves through, Florida will face another disaster, its home owner insurance crisis. Already, Ian is believed to be the costliest hurricane to ever hit Florida.
