Hurricane Ian death toll rises



Nafter the passage of hurricanes “Ian” has continued to increase the death toll in the US state of Florida. As the broadcaster CNN and representatives of various local authorities reported on Thursday, at least twelve people were killed by the devastating storm. After “Ian” temporarily weakened to a tropical storm, the US Hurricane Center NHC later classified it as a hurricane again and continued to warn of “life-threatening, catastrophic” storm surges, strong winds and rain.

US President Joe Biden had previously said in Washington during a visit to Fema headquarters that “Ian” could be “the deadliest hurricane in Florida history.”

The situation is still dangerous, warned Biden. “We continue to experience deadly rains, catastrophic storm surges, flooded streets and homes,” he said. “We see millions of people without power — and thousands sheltering in schools and community centers.” These people wondered what was left of their homes, or if they would have homes at all.

FEMA Disaster Management Director Deanne Criswell said: “hurricane “Ian” will be a storm that we’ll be talking about for decades to come.”

“Ian” made landfall on Wednesday as one of the strongest hurricanes in Florida’s history and caused major damage there.
