Hurricane Ian in Florida

DSC Weekly 4 October 2022 – Resiliency

  • Kurt Cagle 

Last week, Hurricane Ian hit Fort Myers, Florida, skirting the edge of Category 5 Hurricane classification. By the time it exited the other side of the Peninsula (going on to hit the Carolinas as a severe tropical storm), Ian had brought 18′ storm surges that leveled buildings, killed at least seventy-five people, and left several million people without power. The storm was nearly as large as the state when it made landfall.
