Florida’s Lee County Sheriff’s Office Shares Aftermath Pictures
Hurricane Ian left over 2 million customers without power as it made landfall less than 24 hours ago. So far the death toll has reached 21 in the Florida area. Ian made landfall as a category 4, just short a few MPH of being a Cat 5. Sound familiar?
As the sun rose across Florida, authorities began to assess the damage to their areas. The Lee County Sheriff's Office took photos of their Sheriff touring the area. They made a statement on their Facebook page yesterday.
This morning Sheriff Carmine Marceno took a tour of Lee County to begin assessing damage by Hurricane Ian. We are devastated. Our hearts go out to every resident who is impacted. The Lee County Sheriffs Office is mobile and will stop at nothing to help our residents. We will get through this together. We are one community and we will overcome this tragedy.
Other areas around Florida were just as bad. The Sanibel Causeway completely washed out.
In Fort Myers, flooding was fast and intense as the storm surge rushed onto the shore. This timelapse from Brennan Prill will shock you!
Then, there's this video that is the most Florida thing I have seen in a while. It's a shark swimming down the street.
